Fin whales return to old feeding grounds in Southern Ocean

By George Berry | 12th July 2022

An exciting discovery by researchers in the waters around Antarctica suggest that fin whales are starting to return to their former feeding grounds. During the first part of the 20th century, commercial whaling decimated whale numbers in the region as whalers reduced populations to a fraction of their original figure. By the time it become…

Give the ocean a chance – our message from the UN Ocean Conference

By Ed Goodall | 6th July 2022

I’m looking out over the River Tejo in Lisbon, Portugal, reflecting on the astounding resilience of nature. It’s the end of a motivating and exhausting five days at the second UN Ocean Conference (UNOC). Before the conference started, I went out on the river with Astrid Fuchs and Bianca König (colleagues from WDC Germany) and…

By Ed Goodall | 28th June 2022

At Whale and Dolphin Conservation, we’re working hard to bring whales and the ocean into climate conversations at the highest levels. I lead WDC’s ‘Green Whale‘ team and this week I’m at the United Nations Ocean Conference in Lisbon talking to policymakers about the vital roles whales play in our fight against the climate crisis.…

Icelandic whalers kill first fin whales in four years

By Danny Groves | 24th June 2022

As feared, whale hunters in Iceland have slaughtered at least two fin whales, the first to be killed in four years. Hopes remain that the cruel practice will end in 2023 after the country’s Fisheries Minister, Svandís Svavarsdóttir cast doubt over its future a few weeks ago, saying that there is now little justification for authorizing…

Climate giants – how whales can help save the world

By Vicki James | 14th June 2022

We know that whales, dolphins and porpoises are amazing beings with complex social and family lives, and we are leaning more about them all the time. But we are only beginning to understand that whales are essential in ensuring a healthy ocean and helping us combat climate change. The ocean is our largest carbon sink,…

The dolphin and porpoise casualties of the war in Ukraine

By Erich Hoyt | 7th June 2022

Rare, threatened subspecies of dolphins and porpoises live in the Black Sea along Ukraine’s coast. They are also victims of war, along with the researchers who study them. Last year, I worked closely with 20 scientists including both Ukrainian and Russian colleagues to identify dolphin and porpoise habitats in the Black Sea. Following our five-day…

Pumps and conveyor belts. How could more whales help save us?

By Danny Groves | 23rd May 2022

We are excited to announce backing for two ground-breaking research projects to assess the little understood impact whales have on marine productivity and carbon capture.  The projects, run by scientists from US and UK universities, will explore the extent to which whales transfer vital nutrients as they feed, defecate and migrate.  The Alaska Whale Pump…

The whale trappers are back with their cruel experiment

By Vanessa Williams-Grey | 17th May 2022

Anyone walking past my window might have heard my groan of disbelief at the news that, against all logic – rather like a bad Netflix series that has somehow been commissioned for a second season – the ‘minke whale trappers’ are back with their nets to have another go this summer! Starting tomorrow and despite…

Meet the legendary pink river dolphins

By Alison Wood | 10th May 2022

Botos don’t look or live like other dolphins. Flamingo-pink all over with super-skinny snouts and chubby cheeks, they certainly stand out in a crowd. And they never set a flipper in the ocean – home is the fresh, flowing waters of three mighty South American river basins: the Amazon, Orinoco and Tocantins-Araguaia. The botos‘ magnificent realm…
