The World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) is the largest global network of partners, working together to address some of the most pressing issues facing cetaceans and their ocean habitats. For the last decade, the WCA has endeavoured to benefit and protect whales, dolphins, porpoises and their environments around the world.

We believe that real change comes from working in partnership, whether it’s with individuals, communities, organisations, institutions or governments. Where there is collaboration, there is a shared sense of purpose. By supporting each other, we can safeguard cetaceans and the places they call home, in harmony with the communities they live alongside, for generations to come.


All of the WCA’s programmes, campaigns and projects align with our four pillars:

Protect – cetaceans and their habitats

Empower – communities and people

Collaborate – locally, regionally, and globally

Demonstrate – through knowledge and example
