Gamers for Orcas

Gamers for Orcas banner

For our Armchair Challengers

Join Gamers for Orcas and the sponsorship money you raise will provide vital funds to protect orcas.

Just get a pod together - you, your family or virtually with friends, neighbours, club, society or colleagues - set a date and get sponsored to game for (up to) 24-hours.  Esports, online, computer, traditional board games - any game, any number of players, anywhere!

Our Individual Heroes

Simple fundraising ideas are often the most effective - but whatever you choose to do, make sure it fits in with your lifestyle and is something you will enjoy - above all, it should be fun!

Be inspired by some of our fundraisers or simply purchase something on our Amazon Wish List - whatever you do, you'll be helping us achieve our vision of a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free.

Brave the Shave

Whilst many of us have bravely sported our 'home haircuts' during lockdown, Ianthe cut off her lovely long hair for WDC and raised over £400 (then donated the hair to the Little Princess Trust) and Bash braved the shave and raised a fantastic £720!

How much would your locks raise?  And think how much you'd save on shampoo!

Running for Orcas

Brady from British Columbia decided it was time for action!  Setting himself the target of running 100km (not in all on one day of course!), he raised CA$135.

Brady said: "The main reason I did this run was because I wanted to make a difference.  I was just tired of always saying to myself that I should do something and then end up not doing anything.  It feels awesome running for a cause you believe in and I encourage others to do the same".

Claire Dayment Skydive2

Skydiving for dolphins, parachuting for porpoises

Jumping out of a plane isn't for the faint-hearted but Claire Dayment (pictured), Kenzie Grant and Kasey Hazel did just that and had a whale of a time. If you'd like to take on a Skydive to help whales and dolphins, get in touch!
