WDC partners and supporters make waves on Oceans Day

A huge thank you to all the WDC partners and supporters who came together to celebrate World Ocean Day, raising over £44,000 for our conservation work.

World Oceans Day Steam Sale

Coordinated in partnership with UK based games publisher, Curve Games, and supported by Steam, the leading online video game store, we ran our biggest ever Steam sale. The collaboration saw more than 40 games titles from over 20 games studios and raised an incredible £40,000 to protect whales and dolphins across the globe. A special thank you to Curve Games and Valve for their  support hosting the sale.

‘It’s amazing to see so many games companies coming together to support WDC for Oceans Day.” says John Clark, CEO of Curve Games. ‘What is more amazing however, is how WDC work tirelessly to protect the ocean and create safer environments for whale and dolphin populations. Creating healthy oceans, protecting whales and dolphins is so important to us all and Curve are delighted to be involved in such an important initiative.’

Their extraordinary work to highlight the plight of whales and dolphins all over the world was something we at Frugi wanted to highlight and help raise awareness of,” says Sam Dark, PR and partnerships manager at Frugi. Working with the entire WDC team was incredible - I learned so much about their work during an Instagram live with Charlie, and it was a huge hit with our audience. Everyone at Frugi is now so engaged with Rainbow, our adopted dolphin, and I look forward to providing updates in the future on Rainbow’s progress with her baby.”
