Help us prevent deaths in nets

The biggest threat

What's the problem?

Fishing gear and nets are the biggest killers of whales and dolphins.  It has to stop.

Harbour porpoises or puffing pigs, make their home all around the UK coast. But these little porpoises could be dying in the nets used to catch the fish on our dinner plates. Every year, about 1,000 of these unique individuals die in UK gillnets alone.

Like us, the UK fishing industry doesn’t want to see whales and dolphins suffer, but the ocean can be a dangerous place for a whale or dolphin to live.  We need your help.

How you can help:

We need to act now to end this terrible waste of life. Will you help us today with a gift or £30, or whatever you can afford? A donation from you could help us:

  • continue to work with the fishing industry to understand impacts, develop alternative fishing gears and make existing gear safer
  • attend UK meetings and engage with decision-makers to push for legislative and policy change
  • continue to help fund scientific studies, like the recent exploration of pinger use in Cornwall

We will feedback on our progress, but we can only continue our work with the help of supporters like you. Every pound will help.

If you give £30 or more, as a thank you, we will send you our award-winning magazine, Whale & Dolphin four times a year.
