Introduction to WDC

WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation is the leading charity dedicated to the protection of whales and dolphins.

Our vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free.

Our mission is to amaze people with the wonder of whales and dolphins and inspire global action to protect them.

We live and breathe our mission, to make our vision a reality.  We are authorities on whale and dolphin issues, and we are passionate about what we do. We work globally through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research, rescue, education and much more.

We operate at international meetings and work across many seas and oceans, as well as through our offices in the UK, North America, Argentina, Germany and Australia.

Our values:

Passion – We care deeply about whales and dolphins, and we share this passion with our supporters.

Integrity – Our work is backed by robust research, science and philosophy. We are the authority on whales and dolphins and the threats they face.

Inclusiveness – WDC does not work alone. Our supporters are at the heart of what we do. We also work with other NGOs, communities and governments to achieve real protection for whales and dolphins.

Courage – We are not afraid to take on big business, governments or industries whose actions harm whales and dolphins.
