Special dolphin-spotting webcam in Scotland, UK

WDC’s Adopt a Dolphin features dolphins who live in and around the Moray Firth in Scotland, UK. Part of the funds from the Adopt Me donation will be used to set up a remote camera at Chanonry Point to film the dolphins who regularly visit. This will help WDC field officer, Charlie Philips, keep track of the dolphins and monitor their health and activities everyday. For more than 25 years WDC has been at the forefront of efforts to protect these amazing dolphins and their ocean home. They also work closely with Aberdeen University and their Lighthouse Field Station team who will also use the new camera and who have kindly provided the in-game dolphin sounds!

Protecting vulnerable Franciscana dolphins, South America

The Franciscana is a small, vulnerable dolphin who lives only in coastal waters of Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay in South America. WDC is working to save these amazing dolphins from extinction by protecting their home and keeping them safe from threats like pollution and accidental entanglement in fishing nets. WDC’s project will include vital conservation field work to help us learn more about these dolphins and how we can protect them, raise awareness among local communities and work towards creating an area of ocean where the Franciscana dolphins will have special protection around Argentina.
