UK dolphins, porpoises and whales need your help
Whales and dolphins can’t breathe underwater. Trapped in a net, they will panic, just like you would. Many endure terrible wounds and broken bones as they try to escape. When they can’t struggle anymore, they will close their blowhole and suffocate.
Thousands of dolphins, porpoises and whales die in fishing gear every year in UK seas. Most of the protection they have comes from the EU. But, after Brexit they won’t even have that. What then? Even more could die.
I know you’ve helped our campaigns before and I hope we can count on you again. Your support is incredibly valuable. Please spare a few seconds to sign this important petition. Urge the governments of the UK to put laws in place to protect dolphins, porpoises and whales once Britain leaves the EU.
We can win this campaign if we all stand together, so we’ve teamed up with our friends at the petition site, Care2. We must show Ministers that people care about dolphins, porpoises and whales dying in UK seas.
Thank you for taking a few moments to sign. It’s a simple thing to do but can make a big difference. Let’s stop the suffering.
With my very best wishes,
Julia Thoms, WDC campaigns manager
