Hundreds of thousands of whales and dolphins die each year in fishing gear and due to overfishing, pollution and hunting. Less than 1% of the world’s oceans
are strictly protected.

Homes for Whales – Efficient Marine Protected Areas now!
The world’s oceans are in a poor condition, and whale and dolphin populations are under threat. They need places where they are protected. Overfishing, chemicals, oil pollution and underwater noise are all threatening the survival of these marine mammals. Our goal is to create marine protected areas in the seas around the world. To do this, we need your voice for whales!
Homes for whales!
Whales and dolphins are fascinating. Their complex social behavior, long migrations and communication skills are amazing. However, only 1% of the world’s oceans are designated as protected areas for cetaceans and even there they are in danger of multiple, unmonitored threats.

Penguins, whales and many more would be safe if Antarctic waters became protected zones.

Was haben Pinguine mit uns Walen zu tun? Ganz einfach, wenn sie in antarktischen Gewässern geschützt werden, profitieren auch wir davon!
