WDC Australasia is currently running a number of campaigns, these include:
Supporting a comprehensive Marine Protected Area network around Australia
Opposing oil and gas exploration in sensitive South Australian marine areas
Helping to protect the endangered maui/ hector dolphin populations in New Zealand
Working to end Japanese whaling in and around Antarctic waters
We also work with the successfully recognised DolphinWatch program which currently operates in 2 states coordinating school students to work in citizen science projects conducting dolphin surveys in their local waters.
As well as researching and lobbying for increased protection for the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary population, WDC believes that the dolphins would be best served by establishment of a Dolphin Interpretive Centre next to the water. The success of the Sanctuary ultimately depends on the education of residents, user groups, visitors and all people living in the stormwater catchment area. To achieve this success, and fulfil its required objectives the Sanctuary requires a public profile.
