WDC Summer raffle

Play the WDC summer raffle and help us put an end to the capture of wild orcas.

First prize: £1,000 // Second prize: £500 // 5 x Runners-up prizes: £100

Last year, as a result of increasing public pressure, SeaWorld announced an end to all orca breeding programmes and a phasing out of its controversial theatrical orca shows. Thank you for playing your part in this enormous victory! Against public pressure and despite progress to end the capture of wild orcas into captivity, Russian authorities have again given permission for up to 10 orcas to be captured from its Pacific region in 2017. We can only assume these orcas will be sold to China, where ongoing construction of huge new marine parks is increasing demand for wild caught marine mammals.

When you play the WDC raffle, the money raised:

  • Will help WDC attend conventions to increase international protection of orcas from cruel wild captures
  • Will be used to educate and inform citizens in China and other countries, not to visit facilities that hold whales and dolphins captive
  • Will help WDC continue to fight for an end to the captivity of whales and dolphins around the world

Here’s how you can play – it’s easy and secure. Play with as little as £1 by clicking this 'Play Now' link – you could win £1,000 – but hurry, closing date is 10 July 2017 and the draw will be made on 17 July 2017. Thanks so much for your support and best of luck from all of us at WDC.
