WDC has just launched a new report on responsible whale watching which we hope will prove useful whether you are just seeking basic information on whale watching, or specific information about a certain destination.
The report outlines the benefits of whale watching and why it is so important that the activity is carried out responsibly. It provides a checklist of what to look out for in a good whale watch trip before listing some of the best places to see whales and dolphins worldwide.
Did you know that you may be lucky enough to see the largest creature on the planet, the blue whale, off Iceland, California, Sri Lanka or the Azores? Or that almost 30 species of whale, dolphin and porpoise are found in the waters around the British Isles? Or that many species can be viewed from land, including southern right whales off South Africa?
So, if your plans for the holidays include meeting whales, dolphins or porpoises in the wild, then make sure you read our new report before you leave home!
