We sail for the whale

WDCS The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, a faithful supporter and collaborator of Tethys, is running a campaign named We Sail for the Whale alongside the world’s premier global yacht race, the Volvo Ocean Race.

The goal is to highlight the urgent need for better protection of the world’s whales and dolphins, and the race will help building support for safe havens for whales and dolphins. Key focus of the campaign is a petition calling on for the establishment of 12 marine protected areas around the world, by 2012. The petition will be presented to governments and international conservation agreements in June 2009 at the end of the race in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Sign the Global Petition for Marine Protected Areas!
