Give whales a ‘high five’ and donate $5!

High five for whales circle

We are celebrating how amazing whales and dolphins are by giving whales a high five!

By donating just $5, you will help WDC 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 programs, community engagements, and virtual presentations.

POLICY

Policy graphic

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.
