WDCS in the UK
WDCS is campaigning for greater protection of whales and dolphins around the UK shores through improved legislation.
We also fund research and education initiatives, run two wildlife centres in Scotland, and our POD campaign is helping to ensure a future for the dolphins of the Moray Firth.
Over 25 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises (collectively known as cetaceans) live in UK waters, and many more are occasional visitors to our shores.
More than 20 species of whale, dolphin and porpoise are found in the waters around Scotland and it is the best place in the UK to see a number of our whales and dolphins.
Add your voice to our campaign to protect Scotland's whales and dolphins with the creation of the Hebrides Marine Reserve.
Protect Our Dolphins (POD) is our campaign to protect the dolphins that live in Scotland’s Moray Firth.
