DSP Mission & Objectives
The mission of the Dolphin Space Programme (DSP) is to be a model of excellence in responsible wildlife tourism and to support the sustainable, positive development of marine wildlife watching in the Moray Firth, Scotland.
The DSP aims to achieve this mission through these complementary objectives:
1. Reducing the potential impact that cetacean watching boats can have on the status, distribution or behaviour of the Moray Firth dolphins;
2. Raising awareness and encouraging conservation of marine wildlife through provision of high quality training, educational materials and interpretation to DSP members and to the public;
3. Encouraging collaboration between wildlife tour operators, management agencies, conservation organisations, members of the public and other water users, including recreational boats and shore-based wildlife watchers.
4. Encouraging long-term ecological and economical sustainability of marine wildlife tourism in the Moray Firth.
