WDC's annual gaming challenge is back

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!


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,  have a go at one of our Easy Fundraising Ideas or 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.
