Wipe Our Whaling

SEA LIFE Trust Helps Protect Whales

Stop the transport, stop the trade

The SEA LIFE Trust is working with Whale & Dolphin Conservation (WDC) to wipe out commercial whaling. WDC has proved that whale meat and other whale products have docked in ports around the world and is working to outlaw this transport and trade.

The investigation has also uncovered a surprising range of items that whale products are being used for including dog food, engine oil, watches and even beer.

The SEA LIFE Trust is raising funds to help:

  • Send Whale & Dolphin Conservation experts to campaign around the world
  • Carry out DNA analysis of suspected products
  • Hire legal experts to maximize the impact of current laws

Sign our petition to prevent whale meat being transported through ports and explore this section to find out more about the problems whaling causes throughout the world.

Whale Behavior

Whales are very clever and sociable, many forming close family bonds, and can communicate with each other through song or other vocalizations.

Whale Scale

Blue whales are the largest animals to have ever lived. They can grow up to 30 yards long and eat up to 8 tons of krill (small fish) per day!

Ocean Recycling

Whales provide nourishment to deep-sea organisms. After a whale dies, every part of its body is consumed by creatures in the deep sea - this can take decades!
