Join the Climate Giant Project.
The battle against climate change can feel hopeless sometimes. A rising ocean, melting ice caps, and rampant wildfires can seem too massive a problem for us to ever face alone. Luckily, we have some massive allies. Whales.
Whales are fighting climate breakdown - and these Climate Giants are doing so in a big way.
Our enormous underwater allies are helping to sustain an ocean that captures as much carbon as all the rainforests on Earth.
Imagine if there were ten times more whales.
If baleen whale populations recovered to their pre-whaling numbers, they could store almost a billion trees worth of carbon.
But, instead of protecting them, we’ve pushed species like the blue whale to the brink of extinction.
It’s time to give our mighty helpers a little hand. It’s time to protect them as they protect us. Climate change is the biggest problem humanity has ever faced, but, in our corner, we have the biggest partners that the Earth has ever seen.
Help us stop whaling, prevent deaths in nets, end captivity and create healthy seas where these Climate Giants can thrive.
Planet Earth needs a healthy ocean.
And a healthy ocean needs whales.
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 a 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.
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 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."
