The World Cetacean Alliance is immensely grateful to the following organisations, all of which have provided vital funding to enable us to continue our work to protect whales, dolphins, and their habitats around the world.
LUSH FRESH HANDMADE COSMETICS

For one year, they support WCA and help us to develop and implement campaigns and expand our network of partners.

They used creative solutions to make a positive impact on the planet, like the invention of the first-ever solid shampoo bar.
They research to show the world that it is possible to invent, manufacture and bring to market an entire range of products that adhere to all the legal safety requirements, without ever having to test on animals along the way.

THE BODY SHOP FOUNDATION
Although no longer in operation The World Cetacean Alliance is enormously grateful to The Body Shop Foundation for providing essential core funding support for an initial three year period. This funding supports the WCA Secretariat, enabling us to develop and implement campaigns and expand our network of Partners. The Body Shop Foundation has been vital to the WCA, allowing us to develop our policy, advocacy, and campaigning strategies, and set up a governance structure that empowers all of our Partners across the world.
The Body Shop Foundation is the charitable trust of The Body Shop International. It gives money to innovative, global projects working for social and environmental change.
Since 1989, The Body Shop Foundation has funded over 2,500 projects around the world, donating just over £21 million. Their remit is to look for groups with enthusiasm, energy and drive who work at grassroots level. These projects – however dynamic – sometimes get overlooked. Sometimes – because of the unfamiliar or pioneering nature of their work – conventional funding is hard for them to get. To The Body Shop Foundation though, being different and daring deserves to be recognised.
The Body Shop Foundation looks for progressive charities and groups which fall within its remit and invite them to apply for funds. They are incredibly proud of the groups they support and the difference they make to thousands upon thousands of lives and habitats around the world
The World Cetacean Alliance is proud to be working in partnership with Responsible Travel on the cetacean captivity issue. Our joint ‘Say No to Orca Circuses’ campaign has led to a petition signed by over 12,000 people and hundreds of travel companies and non-profit organisations across Europe and beyond. Thanks to Responsible Travel’s efforts we have received national press coverage on the issue on several occasions in the UK, and we continue to contact travel industry representatives to encourage them to stop supporting marine parks and aquariums that hold whales and dolphins in captivity for entertainment purposes.
