The Great Whale Conservancy is dedicated to protecting the world’s great whales and their habitats, and returning global populations towards their pre-whaling abundance, with special focus on the blue whales.
The population of blue whales declined from over 350,000 to around 10,000 today. Watch video
But we need live whales, in abundance, swimming the seas, more than ever. Scientists have now shown whales are essential to the oceanic food web, and to the ocean’s capacity to absorb carbon.
Our work is dedicated to bringing these life-giving mammals back to pre-whaling numbers so they can once again contribute to a healthy ocean and planet, and help reverse the effects of climate change. Watch Video
