Rescue training with CRRU

In its capacity as an emergency response unit, CRRU aims to ensure that the treatment of sick, injured or live-stranded marine mammals is carried out to the very highest standards.

Working closely with the Scottish Marine Animal Strandings Scheme (SMASS), and liaising with the Scottish SPCA, HM Coastguard and other local and national animal welfare organisations, the organisation is therefore available to direct this response with dedicated lectures, courses and practical demonstrations carried out throughout the year.

Our rescue training courses are held once a month or so from May to October at the CRRU headquarters in Gardenstown, near Banff. These courses are freely available to anyone wishing to assist the team in this life-saving area of the charity's work.

Simply email us for further details or call us on 01261 851696.
