Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC North America)

Mission Statement

Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s (WDC) mission is to educate people on the significant ecological role whales and dolphins play in the marine ecosystem, and inspire global action to protect them.
Saving whales is not simply ethical – it is essential to our survival! Emerging research confirms that whales play an integral role in our planet’s ecosystem, fertilizing the phytoplankton which produces at least half the earth’s oxygen, sequestering most of the ocean’s carbon, and forming the initial food base for all fish populations. Researchers from the University of Vermont concluded that the role of whales in the ecosystem is so significant, that their recovery can help reduce the impacts of climate change. Saving whales is a means to reduce greenhouse gases, sustain fish populations, and secure a healthy future for all. 

Why Donate to Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC North America)?

Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) is the leading global non-profit dedicated to the conservation of whales, dolphins, and their ocean home.

Your donation helps us continue our ongoing work to protect whales and dolphins through outreach, policy, and science:

OUTREACH – Outreach is the thread that connects all of our work. We want to show everyone why whales and dolphins are so amazing. We are spreading the word about how important they are to our ecosystem and our planet through school and community programs, as well as virtual webinars and presentations.
POLICY – Conservation lies on the shoulders of policy. We consult with state and federal agencies, run campaigns, and meet with lawmakers to increase protections for whales and dolphins. Right now that work is focused on the North Atlantic right whales who feed and raise their families all along the east coast of North America and the Southern Resident orcas who call the Pacific Northwest home.
SCIENCE – All of our work is based on sound science. We collect data, collaborate with researchers, and mentor the next generation of scientists. Our 2022 paid interns are joining us this March.
