Humpback whale

Join us and be part of the climate solution

Planet Earth needs a healthy ocean. And a healthy ocean needs whales.

Whether your company is looking to for an environmental organisation to partner with, an exciting option as part of your sustainability efforts or you’re seeking innovative ways to meet your UN Sustainable Development Goals, investing in a safe future for whales through WDC’s Green Whale programme could be just what you’re looking for!

In the twentieth century alone whalers killed three million whales – driving many species, including the blue whale, to the brink of extinction. In just over 100 years, the number of blue whales in the ocean dropped from 350,000 to just 25,000.

But nature is resilient and it can recover. We just need to give it a helping hand. And helping whale populations survive and thrive is a giant piece of the puzzle. In fact, the IMF recently estimated that protecting just one whale could have the same impact as planting 30,000 trees. Read more about the science.

You can help. You can be part of the solution.

With the climate crisis becoming ever more pressing, WDC urgently needs to expand our global activity to protect whales...our ocean’s symbols of hope.

What do we need to do?

Protect thousands of carbon-saving whales from dying in fishing gear

The average humpback whale can sequester an impressive 33 tons of carbon throughout its lifetime. But right now, creel pot ropes are responsible for the deaths of around five humpbacks every year in the seas around Scotland - and many more minke whales. We urgently need your help to continue our work to find solutions that can be implemented in small-scale fisheries around the globe.

Minke whale

Stop whalers killing whales…and our climate

Despite the role whales play in taking carbon out of the atmosphere, whalers continue to harpoon and kill our biggest climate allies. Norway has announced it will target up to 1,278 common minke whales in its upcoming whaling season. Your support keeps us working with like-minded organisations in Norway to change hearts, minds …and policies.

Achieve global recognition of the role whales play in fighting climate change

We are urgently working to establish robust scientific data on the impact of whales in mitigating climate change, so that it can be used to feed into, and drive, national and international policies and conservation plans. Your support will help us get further, faster.

You can help us achieve all of this.

    "The Cheeky Panda as an impact organisation wants to protect both life on land and life in the oceans for future generations. The whales and dolphins are such an important part of the health of our oceans and we need to protect them through conservation, that’s why we’ve been proud to have donated over £10k to WDC in the last year and why we hope to continue to work with WDC to help create a better planet."  Chris Forbes, Co-Founder of Cheeky Panda
