Whale & Dol­phin Conservation

To suc­cess­ful­ly mit­i­gate the cli­mate cri­sis, human­i­ty requires a broad toolk­it’ of mech­a­nisms, includ­ing evi­dence-based nat­ur­al solu­tions. As a nature-based solu­tion to the cli­mate cri­sis and ocean health, whales have the poten­tial to absorb sig­nif­i­cant amounts of car­bon dioxide.

Whale & Dol­phin Con­ser­va­tion (WDC) aims to catal­yse our knowl­edge of whales as ecosys­tem engi­neers, and nat­ur­al allies in main­tain­ing ocean health and tack­ling the cli­mate cri­sis. By cre­at­ing com­pelling eco­log­i­cal, eco­nom­ic, and soci­etal argu­ments for the restora­tion of whale and dol­phin pop­u­la­tions, they will under­pin much-need­ed sus­tain­able blue finance’ mech­a­nisms and prac­ti­cal con­ser­va­tion that deliv­ers recov­ery of marine bio­di­ver­si­ty. In par­tic­u­lar, mak­ing whale pro­tec­tion the nat­ur­al choice for investors seek­ing to val­ue the broad range of returns from marine con­ser­va­tion through the devel­op­ment of Blue Car­bon Cred­its as a sus­tain­able finance mech­a­nism for pro­tect­ing those large areas of open ocean which are vital to whales as feed­ing, breed­ing areas and migra­tion routes between the two.
