Nantucket Whaler is a proud supporter of Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), a non-profit organization wholly aligned with our Nantucket Whaler brand values.
WDC is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation of whales and dolphins. WDC defends these remarkable creatures against the many threats they face through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research and education. They are campaigners, they are researchers on boats in the oceans and rivers, they are advisors to governments at the International Whaling Commission, they are volunteers talking to schoolchildren or fishermen. We are their proud supporters! Together we are ‘one’ WDC.
A world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. This sentence embodies why WDC exists and what they aim to achieve. Though simple, this vision is hugely ambitious and personifies the world as we all want it to be; a world without captivity and without whaling; a world where whales and dolphins are free of the dangers of pollution or the threat of being captured or killed in nets. Underpinning this vision is the knowledge that we humans need whales to survive and thrive because whales play an important role in mitigating climate change and sustaining fish and plankton stocks which produce a substantial portion of our oxygen. We help protect whales and dolphins and their culture for their future and for ours.
