Working Group for Responsible Whale & Dolphin Watching

Chair:

Cynde McInnis, Cape Ann Whale Watch, USA

Secretary:

Stephanie Stefanski, Bottazzi, Argentina

 

The Working Group for Responsible Whale and Dolphin Watching is developing joint initiatives to share scientific data, develop new standards for whale watching, and encourage tourists to get active on ‘ghost’ fishing nets and entanglement.

 

The Group also sets, distributes and polices minimum standards for responsible whale and dolphin watching for all Whale and Dolphin Watch Partners of the WCA. The group is also the driving force behind the WCA Whale Heritage Sites accreditation scheme, setting new standards for responsible whale and dolphin watching destinations.
