Developing compassion and respect for marine mammals is key to what we do. We believe children play a vital role in the future of these animals.
Because we're serious about getting the message of animal welfare across, we've teamed up with Barbara Todd, to bring the magical world of whales and dolphins to you.
Through our World of Whales educational resource kit, we'll help you teach kids about these animals and their environment, so that they can play a bigger part in the protection of marine mammals in the future.
