Based in Brighton, the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) is the world’s largest marine conservation partnership. WCA champions the protection of marine habitats through community engagement, by focusing on whales and dolphins (cetaceans).
The Brighton Dolphin Project (BDP) is WCA’s local initiative that was set up to celebrate the cultural heritage that Brighton has with Dolphins, whilst trying to inspire and excite the local community about conservation issues along the Sussex coast, encouraging human behaviour change that will lead to increasingly sustainable practices.
