Save the Whales: Reloaded has inspired the creation
of the World
Cetacean Alliance, a global partnership of over 30 NGOs, whale and dolphin
watch companies, and individuals determined to bring positive change for whales
around the world.
The first order of business is to identify which
areas are most threatened, and for that we need YOUR help!
So please tell us about your 'Areas of Concern'
for whales and dolphins by spending just 5 minutes to complete our
questionnaire and mapping the locations.
This is the first time that members of
the public, scientists and other stakeholders worldwide have had the
opportunity to contribute their knowledge on the critical issues and locations
affecting cetaceans. Because this survey is being conducted globally,
every time you highlight an Area of Concern, that place gets HOTTER. The
hotter the place, the more pressure we can apply to get protection in that
Every completed survey will be entered into the World Cetacean Alliance
database and used to bring pressure for change. The preliminary results
will be discussed at the World
Whale Conference (Massachusetts, Nov 4-7th 2013). As a result, the Alliance will publish, for
the very first time, global and regional maps illustrating hotspots for all of
the major issues affecting cetaceans, including critical habitat, whaling,
pollution, captivity, fisheries, and vessel collisions. This is your chance to
have your say.
Your Area of Concern could make a world of difference for cetaceans. Help them by completing the survey now (the survey takes 5-10 minutes).
Thank you very much!
