Make a big SPLASH for whales and dolphins!

Big Splash swim

Jump or dive into your local pool to raise funds to help protect whales and dolphins!

Anyone can take part in the Big Splash Swim - it doesn't matter how far or how fast you swim or how old you are.

If you're or an open water swimmer (or would like to try it for the first time) why not join Team Orca at Swim Serpentine?

Climb Every Mountain

Well, perhaps not every mountain!   If you can't scale the actual peak, how many times do you have to go up and downstairs to reach a virtual summit?

Scafell Pike (978m), Snowdon (1085m), Ben Nevis (1345m), Kilimanjaro  (5895m), Hungry Hill (685m), Brandon Mountain (952m), Slieve Donard  (850m), Pen-y-Fan (886m), Cadair Idris (893m)

And if you're missing Glastonbury, its famous Tor is just 158m!  Keep motivated by listening to your favourite Glasto playlist as you climb.

Set up a JustGiving page for donations and link it to Strava to keep track of your climb. Tag us in @whalesorg on socials as you climb and send us a photo of you celebrating at the summit!

Birthday cake

Donate your Birthday

More 'stuff' at home than space?  Fed up of excessive packaging on presents?  Don't need or want anything in particular?

By asking people to give you donations for WDC instead of birthday presents (or any other celebration) you'll help give the gift of freedom to captive whales and dolphins. Set up a JustGiving page so that friends and family can leave a birthday greeting along with their donation.

And, don't forget, if you're a younger WDC supporter,  it counts towards your Dolphin Defenders Award too.

We'd love to send you a beautiful whale or dolphin birthday card for your special day - just let us know you'll be donating your birthday by emailing your name, address, date of your birthday and age (if you wish) to [email protected]

Party Silhouette

Party for the Planet

Now we're able to get together with friends and family again, why not celebrate with a party for a purpose!

Hold a plastic-free Party for the Planet to raise money to help protect whales - after all, they're helping to save the planet!

Our simple fundraising games and ideas will turn any BBQ, dinner party, picnic or disco into a party that will really make a difference.

Your school, group or society can have a Party for the Planet as the end of term celebration too and all the money you raise will help WDC to protect whales (and dolphins) for the sake of our planet.

Contact [email protected] for more info, ideas or fundraising materials.

Students & Universities

In addition to the ideas above and below, there are lots of fun ways that students can help with raising awareness of our work and fundraising as part of Masters' projects or other challenge schemes that form part of their degree courses.  And whatever you want to do, we're here to help!

We'd also love to be your chosen RAG charity so please get in touch at [email protected]
