Can you spare ten seconds to help us secure £100,000?

We’re through to the final for the ‘100k Giveaway’

Because of our incredible supporters, we’ve made it through to the grand final of the Animal Friends Pet Insurance ‘£100k giveaway’. We’re in with a real chance of securing a game-changing donation that could genuinely make all the difference in our fight to end captivity.

This is Morgan the orca (pictured above). After being found alone and malnourished off the coast of the Netherlands in 2010, Morgan was transported to Loro Parque in Tenerife where she is now used in shows for human entertainment. She was a baby when she was captured. Today there are more than 3,000 whales and dolphins like Morgan held captive in aquariums, zoos and marine parks. We are fighting hard to put an end to this cruel captivity.

As a loyal supporter, we’d be incredibly grateful if you could spare 10 seconds of your time to click the link below and select WDC as your charity of choice. By voting for us, you could help secure a safe future for whales like Morgan.

Thank you.
