Whale and Dolphin Conservation

Established back in 1987, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS), is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and welfare of all whales and dolphins (also known as cetaceans).

In short, we are the world voice for the protection of these animals, creating pressure to bring about change.

What does that mean? Simple, we defend these remarkable creatures against the many threats that they face;

  • Hunting
  • Captivity
  • Chemical and noise pollution
  • Ship collisions (ship strikes)
  • Entanglement in fishing nets (bycatch)
  • Climate change

We do this by taking money raised and pumping it back into campaigns and projects across the globe that really do have an impact.
