Whale and Dolphin Conservation

WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation (Society), is the world's most active charity dedicated to the conservation and welfare of all whales, dolphins and porpoises, also known as cetaceans.

Established in 1987, WDC has offices in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Germany, the UK and the US. This team of people is dedicated and determined to do their best for the animals and proud of the fact that WDC's operating costs are kept to a minimum. The money raised is spent on urgent conservation, research and education projects that really do make a difference to the daily lives and long-term security of thousands of whales, dolphins and porpoises around the world.
