2019 Big Splash Swim

No matter how far or fast you can swim, help Team Orca make an enormous splash for whales and dolphins by taking on an Individual Dolphin or Individual Whale challenge - or involve your entire 'pod' in one of our Pod Challenges!

Urban Beach Clean

Up to 95% of the plastic in the oceans comes from towns and cities so you don't have to live near a beach to make a difference.

Get a group together and organise an Urban Beach Clean (UBC) in your neighbourhood.

Why not combine your UBC with a Street Collection in aid of WDC - great for students and community groups.
