Our Journey
The WCA is a partnership where individuals also have an input. I am so proud and honoured to be involved, working side by side with other organisations and individuals who are as passionate about whales and dolphins as I am and who are willing to make a difference - Rachael Barber, Individual Partner

On World Oceans Day 2013 the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) launched as a fledgling partnership made up of a group of dedicated grass roots NGOs, passionate individuals, and commercial whale watching businesses desperate to make a positive difference for whales and dolphins.

Fast forward five years and the WCA is already the world’s largest marine conservation partnership. Operating through our partners in over 40 countries worldwide, we focus on whales and dolphins as the iconic and inspiring animals with the greatest potential to encourage millions of people to want to protect our blue planet.

Our Partners join WCA because they believe in the power of the many. Because they want to be part of our family. Because they will be treated with respect. Because they still get to retain their own identity. And because they feel, as we feel, that it will take a huge collective effort to halt biodiversity loss and animal cruelty, and encourage a new ocean-friendly and sustainable world.
