If you’ve ever witnessed a humpback whale breach with a mighty splash off your Zodiac bow in Alaska, or come within arm’s reach of a gray whale mother and calf in Baja, or watched a pod of bottlenose dolphins leaping in your boat’s wake in the Galapagos, you know the magic of an encounter with cetaceans. Protecting these intelligent and charismatic mammals matters, and not just because they bring us delight when we see them. To safeguard whales and dolphins, we must clean up and conserve our oceans, and that’s a task with wide-reaching advantages, as you’ll learn in this webinar with special guest Chris Johnson, Global Lead for WWF’s Protecting Whales & Dolphins Initiative. For more than 50 years, WWF has been a world leader in whale and dolphin conservation. Its efforts have resulted in a deeper understanding of these important species and their habitats, establishment of new marine protected areas, reductions in threats such as bycatch and shipping impacts, and major shifts in policy and practice from local to global levels—all of which is helping to preserve a healthier future for whales, dolphins and all of us.
