Bridging Marine Research with Marine Education & Conservation
Whale Trust was formed in 2001 to support field research on whales and their marine environment. Its founders are passionate scientists and explorers who believe that science—the quest for answers to the most intriguing questions about our natural world—lies at the heart of environmental education and conservation.
But Whale Trust seeks to do more than fund groundbreaking field research on our earth's largest marine mammals. Results from Whale Trust's field research are the basis for a broader program of outreach and education that involve the public, educators and a new generation of researchers whom Whale Trust hopes to inspire.
No living animals have captured our imaginations as have the great whales . . . They fire our imaginations and stab at our emotions.They inspire our art, literature, and music. And so they should.The indescribable blend of grace, power, and beauty of a whale as it glides underwater, leaps towards the sky, or simply lifts its flukes and slides into the sea symbolizes a vanishing poetry of the wild.
— Dr. James Darling, With the Whales
