Thank you for thinking about fundraising for Sea Watch Foundation. Fundraising is a fantastic way to contribute to our cause, what you raise helps us continue to protect and research whales and dolphins all around the UK. With governments and businesses making cut backs due to Covid-19; dolphin and whale conservation is falling down their list of priorities and so is our vital research funding.
The health and wellbeing of these highly intelligent sentient whales and dolphins should not be forgotten as they are keystone species that shape entire ocean ecosystems thus contributing to their health.
Can you make a small donation to support our research work? Even a few pounds will go a long way to help us continue our vital projects.
How to Donate
Adopt a Dolphin
Every penny we receive through our Adopt a Dolphin scheme goes solely towards the research and protection of the bottlenose dolphins of Cardigan Bay. Our data are also used by the government authorities to help manage this unique habitat to ensure it remains a safe place for this very special group of dolphins for many years to come. By adopting a dolphin for as little as £3.50 a month you are making a choice to become a guardian for the UK bottlenose dolphin. To pick which dolphin you would like to adopt visit our Adopt a Dolphin website.
