Climate Change is one of the biggest threats facing whales and dolphins today. The climate is changing fast: so fast that some whale and dolphin populations may be unable to adapt.
Changes in sea temperature, freshening of seawater, sea level rise, loss of icy polar habitats and the decline of food sources are just some of the many threats posed by climate change.
WDC facilitates research on the impacts of climate change, leading work to raise awareness of the impacts on whales and dolphins. Working with other groups, we campaign for international action to find solutions and reduce impacts. For more information read our report: Whales in Hot Water.
