TN105 Danny Groves of WDC (Whale and Dolphin Conservation)


A conversation with Danny Groves, Communications Manager with WDC – Whale and Dolphin Conservation, the new name for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. In this podcast we’re discussing why WDC felt the time was right to rebrand, what the refocusing of the organisation is intended to achieve, their more determined stance on ethics and fighting for rights for cetaceans, and what this has all cost (the answer is surprising and has forever elevated my opinion of the Conran Design Group).

  • Established back in 1987, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS), is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and welfare of all whales and dolphins (also known as cetaceans).

    In short, we are the world voice for the protection of these animals, creating pressure to bring about change.

    What does that mean? Simple, we defend these remarkable creatures against the many threats that they face;

    • Hunting
    • Captivity
    • Chemical and noise pollution
    • Ship collisions (ship strikes)
    • Entanglement in fishing nets (bycatch)
    • Climate change
