For those who haven’t heard of them before, WDC stands for Whale and Dolphin Conservation; known as the leading, global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins.
WDC works globally with Governments, NGOs, companies, and communities to protect these remarkable creatures against the many threats they face through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, and field research and rescue.
They are passionate about working with, rather than against individuals to create long-lasting shifts from harmful practices to sustainable ones, that allow whales and dolphins to live safe and free.
Here's what they have to say?
"At WDC we are determined to make our vision a reality. We operate at international meetings and work across the ocean, as well as through our offices in the UK, North America, Argentina, Germany and Australia. We exist to end captivity and hunting, create safer seas, and show that whales and dolphins’ matter to the ocean, and to our planet."- Whale and Dolphin Conservation
Sustainable tourism is important to us at Alpha and we believe a massive part of this is wildlife tourism. Tourism can be a big opportunity in pushing the force for change; supporting responsible ways to see Dolphins and Whales in the wild and not in captivity.
WDC are committed to;
“Encouraging and advocating for travel companies to evolve their corporate social responsibility policies, specifically to end the promotion and sales of activities that feature whales and dolphins in captivity, and to focus on responsible, respectful excursions in the wild”*
