That this House congratulates the Scottish Seabird Centre in East Lothian on receiving £49,733 from The National Lottery Community Fund’s Platinum Jubilee Fund; understands that this funding will go towards their Community Citizen Scientists: Building a Hub for the Future project which will develop a programme for new marine ambassadors to secure the future of Scotland’s marine environment; notes that the Scottish Seabird Centre will build a specialist hub for developing and supporting the community citizen scientists for the future around the Firth of Forth, which will engage 16–24-year-olds in marine ecology and conservation through the development of a science hub, helping to build their confidence and interest in green jobs; and wishes everyone involved the very best of luck with this project and any future projects.
