About 18 years ago I was made aware of the Whale & Dolphin Conservation Society and adopted a killer whale for a year; I regularly undertook sponsored walks and attended events to raise money for the charity and found them well organised and supportive. When my membership expired, I lost touch with the charity and have recently rediscovered them. They are very informative with a huge online presence so keeping up to date with their work is easier than ever. They are still carrying out vital work and I implore anyone with an interest in whales and dolphins to look them up and get involved!
