WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins.
We defend those remarkable creatures against the many threats they face through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research and rescue.
WDC is working towards a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. A world without captivity, without hunting; a world where whales and dolphins are free of the dangers of pollution or the threat of being captured or killed in nets.
Last year our supporters helped us to achieve so much:
• we persuaded President Obama to take action against Icelandic whaling
• we helped save the lives of 44 pilot whales in Scotland
• we were instrumental in the Whaling Commission cleaning up its act
• we sued the Nuremburg Zoo and won
• we pushed the Whaling Commission to act on marine litter
• we reduced the amount of fish sold in the UK with links to Icelandic whaling
• our research led to Moon Reef, Fiji being declared a marine protected area
• we achieved better protection for South America’s vulnerable river dolphins
But with ever increasing demands on whale and dolphin populations around the world we need your support more than ever to ensure a safe future for these remarkable animals.
