Dolphin Care

Dolphins all around our coast are being killed at an alarming rate, and it is this organisation and website's  to help stop the needless killing of these beautiful creatures. But we need your help, to help stop the deaths of Hundreds of dolphins around our coasts.

We aim to achieve better conservation of dolphins in the seas around the UK by involving the public in the monitoring of populations and the threats they face, and by the regular production of material to educate and inform the general public and to lobby for better environmental protection on their behalf.
