Many conservation organisations do an amazing job in protecting and ensuring the survival of our wildlife. Unfortunately, many of these organisations have seen their funding cut or reduced and have to rely on donations to continue their operations – the environment often comes behind economic demands, and during tough financial times, it is often the first to feel the squeeze.
How donations can help
Donations ensure that the activities and programs that these organisations run or sponsor can operate successfully. The organisations really need our support to carry out their good work and ensure they have the required resources and funding.
It is now widely known that a small change in one aspect of an ecosystem can have a devastating effect down the line. Therefore, the research and protection work carried out by environmental conservation organisations can have far reaching benefits, not only for the environment, but for industry and society as a whole. Plus, we all have a responsibility to ensure natural and cultural assets are protected and preserved for future generations.
How you can help
If you want to play your part in whale conservation, you can support The Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife. This organisation guarantees that when you donate towards a specific cause, 100% of your donation goes directly to the cause.
There are other non-profit organisations that support whale protection and research and need your help, including the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the Organisation for the Rescue and Research of Cetaceans in Australia (ORRCA).
Donate now so that we can continue to spot the whales in the future.
