How a gift in your Will helps whales and dolphins

Our vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. But these amazing, intelligent creatures face so many man-made dangers and leaving a gift in your Will can help us protect them.

Our vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. But these amazing, intelligent creatures face so many man-made dangers and leaving a gift in your Will can help us protect them.

WDC Australasia is currently running a number of campaigns, these include:

  • Researching and advocating for the dolphins in the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary
  • Progressing the development of a Dolphin Interpretive Centre for Port Adelaide
  • Supporting a comprehensive Marine Protected Area network around Australia
  • Opposing oil and gas exploration in sensitive South Australian marine areas
  • Helping to protect the endangered Māui/Hector dolphin populations in New Zealand

We also work with the successfully recognised DolphinWatch program which currently operates in two states coordinating school students to work in citizen science projects conducting dolphin surveys in their local waters.

We won’t stop until every whale and dolphin is safe and free. Free from captivity, free from being entangled in fishing nets, free from living toxic oceans, free from being hunted. That is why gifts in Wills are so crucial to our work. They ensure that our work can continue for generations to come.

We hope you will think about leaving a gift to WDC in your Will.
