WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation (formerly WDCS) is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins. Founded in 1987 in Great Britain, WDC is represented in Germany with an office since 1999. Other offices of WDC are situated in Argentina, the USA and Australia. We defend these remarkable creatures against the many threats they face through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research and rescue. WDC is a passionate, global campaigner for whales and dolphins, speaking with emotion and wonder, but always with authority. We make sure our voice is heard by decision makers.

Our vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free.

Our mission is to amaze people with the wonder of whales and dolphins and inspire global action to protect them.

WDC´s core belief is that all whales and dolphins have the right to exist as nature intends, not as humans decide. To be able to live free from hunting, captivity, entanglement in fishing gear and nets, and to swim in clean, noise-free waters where boats won´t injure them.

The three pillars of our work:

- Whaling and Trade
- Captivity
- Marine protected areas
