Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Pacific Whale Foundation’s mission is to protect our oceans through science and advocacy.

We accomplish this through our ongoing marine research, education and conservation programs.

Through our ocean eco-adventure cruises, we have educated nearly 3.5 million people about the marine environment, while raising needed funds to support critically needed whale and dolphin research studies, educational programs for adults and children, as well as important conservation programs, including our fight to stop commercial whaling.

Our Vision

Pacific Whale Foundation’s vision is to be the people’s environmental organization for research, advocacy, and protection of the world’s whales, dolphins and their ocean habitat. We believe that it is essential to involve the public in our mission.

We encourage you to connect and interact with us, to share your thoughts and ideas, and to become a part of our community of people who care about the future of our planet's oceans.
