Driven from safety, hunted, tortured, killed, captured, blasted by noise and poisoned by man's carelessness and deliberate cruelty- whales and dolphins face more threats than ever before. We campaign for an end to these threats, including whaling, fisheries bycatch, captivity and environmental impacts such as pollution and climate change.
WDCS believes that every whale and dolphin is important and deserving of protection We safeguard their communities, populations and whole species. We support ground breaking scientific research and conservation projects and push for better protection for whales and dolphins by countries around the world.
Our shared passion and vision is making the future a safer place for whales and dolphins. It is only by building on our connections - individual, national and international - that we can bring about change. We bring the world of whales and dolphins alive for people through education initiatives and responsible whale and dolphin watching.
