Dolphin + Whale Project


We have a 30-year history of critical victories for dolphins and whales around the world. From Dolphin Safe tuna fishing practices that save more than 100,000 dolphins every year, to taking on the tough dolphin slaughters in Japan, to leading the effort to rescue the orca whale Keiko, we don’t shy away from the tough challenges.

None of this is possible without your support. Please make a tax-deductible single gift or consider a monthly gift to save dolphins and whales today.





Get a DVD of the blockbuster documentary, Blackfish, Susan Casey’s new book, Voices in the Ocean, or a beautiful dolphin t-shirt. All shipping is free for donors.



The International Marine Mammal Project at Earth Island Institute is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization registered under 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code, and thus all charitable donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

We have a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator—the highest rating possible. This "exceptional" designation distinguishes Earth Island Institute from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.
