The Moby-Dick Big Read is an entirely not-for-profit venture, but we are pleased to invite anyone who has enjoyed the readings and artworks to contribute to Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), the international charity which works for the welfare of the animals about which Herman Melville wrote so eloquently, and so movingly.

“WDC is delighted to be associated with such a wonderful project. We are very honoured to be chosen as the recipient of any contributions from members of the public who, after listening, may then feel inspired to help us in our fight against the numerous threats that whales and dolphins face today.” Chris Butler-Stroud (CEO, WDC)

‘The slaughter of whales continues. Every year, over 2,000 whales are killed for profit. Please donate now to help us STOP WHALING’
