"Whales and dolphins face huge challenges over the coming years but WDC is determined to fight for them wherever and whenever we can.

The WDC currently focus on the following key areas:
- Ending captivity
- Stopping Whaling
- Creating Healthy Seas
- Preventing Deaths in Net.
Their achievements include cutting supply routes, and changing legislation in Nordic nations to focus more on protecting imports of whales and dolphins and reducing whale meat consumption. The Conservation has also stopped illegal sales of whale meat, helped ban whale capturing in India and imports of beluga whales in the U.S.!
