WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation (formerly WDCS) is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins. They defend these remarkable creatures against the many threats they face through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research and rescue. WDC’s vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. WDC is a passionate, global campaigner for whales and dolphins, speaking with emotion and wonder, but always with authority. They make sure their voice is heard by decision makers and they care about whales and dolphins and want others to care about them too.
WDC’s core belief is that all whales and dolphins have the right to exist as nature intends, not as humans decide. To be able to live free from hunting, captivity, entanglement in fishing gear and nets, and to swim in clean, noise-free waters where boats won't injure them. And, if you believe in these rights then you would be right to join them! whales.org
