The Ambermouth Seacology Centre was located in Ambermouth. Kate Sherrin and Jim worked there. They took the beluga whale Skipper into care at the centre, despite not having the appropriate facilities, after finding him to be infected by silicon quartz.
The Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Nyssa and Turlough visited the centre while inquiring into the events surrounding the decline of local wildlife populations. Jim and Kate were both working on the issue, and kept several bodies of birds who had fallen victim to the quartz in the centre.
