The Majestic Line is delighted to have been announced by the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) as their first partner in their newly launched Corporate Partnership Scheme.
This new scheme is designed to provide partners with a way to support and engage with HWDT’s innovative research and outreach work. To mark their 25th anniversary in 2019, they are seeking 25 inaugural businesses to be among the first to join the scheme and support their marine conservation work in the Hebrides.
The Majestic Line has been working with HWDT for a number of years, reporting sightings to contribute to our research and undertaking training to ensure they operate responsibly around marine wildlife, and we are both delighted to strengthen our partnership via this new initiative.
“We’re pleased to announce our first Corporate Partner, The Majestic Line, which shares our commitment to the Hebridean marine environment and its wildlife." said Gemma Paterson, Head of Major Gifts at HWDT.
"This new initiative offers businesses an opportunity to get involved and support our research, education work, and engagement with local communities, whilst demonstrating genuine environmental awareness and responsibility."
The Majestic Line’s fleet of beautiful vessels operates from Oban and offers exclusive cruises within the Hebrides, regularly encountering iconic marine wildlife. The company has been working with HWDT for several years, contributing to its research by reporting sightings of cetaceans and by ensuring it operates responsibly around marine wildlife.
“I am delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust and we are honoured that the Majestic Line has been selected as their first corporate partner. We are indebted to the trust for the conservation work that they do and for the education sessions that they provide for both our crews and guests,” said Andy Thoms, Director of The Majestic Line.
