Thank you, your support matters
If you signed our petition to save New Zealand dolphins, I want to say a huge ‚thank you‘ – we genuinely appreciate your support. More than 41,000 people joined our campaign calling on the New Zealand government to keep Hector’s and Māui dolphins safe from the fishing nets that are pushing them towards extinction. We’ve closed the petition now and will give it to New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern soon. Watch this space!
We’ve still got a long way to go and we need you to help by taking part in our simple selfie action. Find out how below.
As always, on behalf of the whales, dolphins and everyone here at WDC, thank you for your support. I hope you enjoy your e-newsletter.
Julia Pix, WDC
Show your support
The petition may be closed but our campaign to save New Zealand dolphins continues. Please take part in our action. It’s easy and it’s quick. Just print our sign of support, take a picture and share on social media or email it to us. We need to show New Zealand’s government that the world is watching.
A real bag for life
Treat yourself to one of these adorable Māui dolphin bags and help save the species from extinction. Hurry, because just like the Māui, there are fewer than 60 bags on the planet. For every bag sold, WDC will receive €30 euros towards our campaign to save New Zealand dolphins..
Amazing record breakers
Did you know that sperm whales are the loudest whales and bowheads live the longest? Whales and dolphins are flippin‘ awesome and you can find more incredible record breakers on our new website…who do you think has the biggest mouth?
New date for beluga move
You may remember that awful weather meant we had to delay moving two belugas to their new ocean home. Little Grey and Little White are now scheduled to arrive in Iceland on 19 June.They continue to prepare for this complex journey.
Please stop killing whales
