WDCS recognises how important education is in achieving our objectives. It underpins everything we do and is at the core of every successful campaign, conservation initiative, whale watch trip, event, project and publication.

In order to reduce and ultimately eliminate the threats to cetaceans and their environment, it is vital to engage and educate a wide variety of people, be they children, local communities, tourists, politicians or other decision-makers.
