Challenge Events 2023

Which one will you take up for whales and dolphins this year?

From skydiving to swimming, movie nights to marathons, there's something for everyone.

Games for Waves

Since 2014, WDC has been collaborating with the games industry to make the greatest impact on our work defending whales and dolphins across the globe.

With the generous support of developers, studios, streamers and the wider games community, we have been able to raise over £3.2 million for our cause to date.

Visit our new dedicated website to find out more.

Students & Universities

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!

Want to attend some of the biggest UK festivals while raising money to help create a safer, healthier planet for whales and dolphins?

Make a SPLASH for whales and dolphins!

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 take part in our challenge event at Swim Serpentine?

Donate your birthday

Birthday cake

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]
