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.’

Leading organic childrenswear retailer Frugi donated a generous £2,000 and adopted Rainbow the dolphin. They also hosted a live interview on Instagram with WDC adopt a dolphin field officer, Charlie Phillips, where they discussed the wonders of dolphins and how whales support our planet’s health. You can check out the interview as well as a Q+A with Charlie on Frugi’s blog here.

‘I had wanted to partner with WDC for some time. 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.”

Long term partner and supporter of WDC, Ethical Superstore, also rallied their customers who collectively donated over £1,000 through sales of their ethical and plastic-free goods. You can still support our work and enjoy some incredible plastic free and ethical goods by shopping with Ethical Superstore today and donating to WDC at the checkout.

A big shout out to amazing WDC supporters who so generously gave a donation on World Ocean Day raising almost £1,400 helping to support whale recovery, thank you.

It’s been great seeing our partners and supporters come together to help us protect the ocean that whales and dolphins call home and deserve to swim wild and free in. We can't thank you all enough for your support on World Ocean Day.
