Children and Schools

How you can help

Children are fascinated by whales and dolphins and are increasingly aware of how their own future depends on the oceans.

Fundraising for WDC can bring rich rewards for your school.

Planning or taking part in fundraising can bring shy pupils out of their shell or comfort zone and they love seeing teachers in a different light - for example, on a dress-down day when outfits in fashion many years ago, a zany tie or a one-sie, come in useful again! Our simple ideas are perfect to get your pupils started.

Your school will receive a certificate and Thank You and, if you raise over £300, a one-year complimentary adoption of the dolphin of your choice.

We may also like to feature your school in our Splash magazine, so we'd love to hear what you are doing and to see photos.

Contact [email protected] or 01249 449550 for help or fundraising materials.

Bottlenose dolphins are one of the most intelligent species.

Sponsored Silence

Like dolphins, children love to chatter!

A Sponsored Silence really is harder than it sounds but perfect for a (quiet) school lunch-hour.
