World Cetacean Alliance

The World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) is the world’s largest Partnership working to protect whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans). Through cooperation, the Partners of the WCA aim to conserve and protect cetaceans and their habitats to ensure their continued health and survival.
We believe that local communities hold the key to protecting cetaceans and their habitats, supported by grass-roots organisations, knowledgeable individuals, and ecotourism experts (our Partners).

Founded 2013

  • Mission statement

    OUR VISION
    A World where cetaceans are only found in the wild, are respected and fully protected, and live in sustainable habitats and in harmony with people everywhere.

    OUR MISSION
    Through cooperation, the Partners of the World Cetacean Alliance aim to conserve and protect cetaceans and their habitats. By phasing out captivity and seeking to protect cetaceans in the world’s oceans, seas and rivers, we are a global community of people who care for cetaceans, study and respect them.

    • To prevent the population reduction or extinction of any cetacean and to prevent humankind’s deliberate or accidental killing of any cetacean.
    • To protect critical habitat including key breeding, feeding and migratory areas for cetaceans and to encourage a global community of people who care for cetaceans and who learn about and respect them.
    • To raise the profile of the issues affecting cetaceans and their habitats through advocacy, publicity, public outreach and global information distribution.
    • To promote responsible whale and dolphin watching as an opportunity to learn, inspire and educate, on trips that are as low impact as possible.
