Whales & Dolphins
From great whales of the high seas to small freshwater dolphins
Today, populations of nearly all the great whales are at depressed levels. This is the result of more than 200 years of unsustainable whaling.
Working to address all threats to cetaceans
WWF's efforts to end uncontrolled commercial whaling is part of a much broader effort to minimise human impacts on all whales and dolphins. Other major threats include marine pollution, climate change, ship strikes, and fisheries by-catch.
