It’s your last chance to show your support for New Zealand dolphins …
The smallest dolphins in the world are in big trouble – they need your help. We can save them if the New Zealand government bans certain fishing nets from the areas where the dolphins live. Our petition will close soon so please sign and share it if you haven’t already
When you go to our petition, you may notice something’s different – I’m very pleased *drum roll* to let you know that we have launched a new website. We hope we have made it much easier to find everything you ever wanted to know about whales, dolphins and porpoises and how your support is helping us keep them safe and free.
We’d love to know what you think of the new site. All comments – positive, negative or anywhere in-between – will be very gratefully received and will help us make your website the best experience that we can for you.
As always, thank you for being with us – without our supporters, we wouldn’t be here to fight for the whales and dolphins we all love.
Julia Pix, WDC.

As common as seagulls
How many New Zealand dolphins should there be? The conservation standard to aim for is not 20 years ago, when there were a few more dolphins around, it’s before our living memory when they were as common as seagulls.
Why are dolphins dying?
You may have read stories recently about a spate of dolphin deaths in nets in New Zealand. Our campaigner in New Zealand, Gemma McGrath, gives you an impassioned insight into what’s going on.
Action for UK dolphins
EU law recognises whales, dolphins and other animals as sentient beings, aware of their feelings and emotions. Ensure UK whales and dolphins keep this legal protection after Brexit. Join WDC, Alesha Dixon and others and sign the petition to keep welfare high on the political agenda.
Is MSC fish dolphin-safe?
If you buy fish with an MSC stamp of approval, can you be sure no dolphins or porpoises died to bring it to your plate? The short answer is ’no‘, unless it is caught with pole and line.
