Why work with Whale and Dolphin Conservation?

Through a partnership with WDC, you can add new dimensions to your brand image, become recognised for your CSR work and engage and motivate your staff members with a range of events and opportunities to work together for a great cause.

Most importantly, you can create a real change across our world’s oceans, through our many areas of work.

Whether you want to help us stop whaling, end the cruelty of keeping whales and dolphins in captivity for human ‘entertainment’, or stop them being killed by plastic pollution and entanglement in fishing gear, get in touch with WDC to see how we can work together to create a rewarding, mutually beneficial partnership.
