WDC adoption dolphin Mischief weighs approx. 450 kilos. If a wild bottlenose dolphin like Mischief requires at least 15% of his body weight in food per day, how many kilos of fish does he need to catch?

Home schooling in the lock down? Struggling to get your maths brains into gear? Well now you or your kids can become a maths whizz with Mercury Learning’s Applied Math Productivity book bundle running through the online store - Humble Bundle, and support WDC’s work at the same time!

The bundle includes 25 Math eBooks, ranging from topics such as Algebra and Calculus to Mathematical Physics and Microsoft Excel Functions and Formulas. Humble Bundle customers can buy it for a fraction of the retail price through Humble Bundle’s flexible pricing policy. As well as choosing the price you want to pay, you can even choose how your money is divided between the creators of the titles, Humble Bundle and their chosen charities. In other words, you can choose how much of your cash goes to supporting our vital work in protecting those super smart whales and dolphins!

Mercury Learning have generously supported WDC since 2018, raising over USD $100,000 in total so far! The income raised from Mercury’s previous WDC-supporting bundles have helped to fund our vital intern programme based in our North American office – helping to protect endangered North Atlantic right whales.

The bundle is available to buy from Monday 20th April to Monday 11th May. To check out the titles included and get your bundle, visit the Humble Bundle site now.

Improve your maths and help a whale or dolphin at the same time. It’s the perfect equation.

…And if you wanted to know the answer to the dolphin maths problem… the answer is 40 kilos of fish - which is a lot! That’s about 10 smaller salmon (4 kilos or 8 pounds in weight) or 5 big salmon at 8 kilos each or 16 pounds in weight.
