Introducing the World Cetacean Alliance
The World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) is a new global Partnership of scientists, non-profit organisations, whale watching tour operators and the general public, all working together to protect whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans). The World Cetacean Alliance connects its Partners both nationally and internationally. This local-to-global approach enables the Partnership to deliver coordinated and practical strategies on the ground whilst representing the views of its Partners on the international stage. Through cooperation, the Partners of the World Cetacean Alliance aim to conserve and protect cetaceans and their habitats in the world’s oceans, seas and rivers, to ensure their continued health and survival. The WCA believes that local communities hold the key to protecting cetaceans and their habitats, supported by grass-roots organisations, knowledgeable individuals, and ecotourism experts (our Partners). Finally, the WCA aims to expand the global community of people who care for cetaceans, have a desire to learn about them, and respect them. For more info visit: www.worldcetaceanalliance.org
As a World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) Partner, the Dolphin and Whale Connection is proud to announce that a donation of £75 per person for each person booked on our “Orca & Aurora” Iceland Tour will be made to help fund the WCAs critical work. The tour will be led by WCA Secretariat and expert marine biologist Dylan Walker who will explain how these funds will be used to protect orcas and other cetaceans worldwide.
