Your support of the Future Generations Appeal will help to expand Killer Whales Australia and our Research Fellowship Program, Two Bays Whale Project and i sea, i care Ambassador program.

Over the past 12 months, Killer Whales Australia and the Dolphin Research Institute have been building a strong relationship, resulting in the Dolphin Research Institute proudly hosting Killer Whales Australia.

As part of this collaboration, our research fellow, Ella, is diligently working on the third publicly available edition of the East Australian Killer Whales Catalogue. Funds donated to this appeal will support the creation of this catalogue and the ongoing hosting of Killer Whales Australia.

Many find it surprising that we receive little government funding – but it makes your support even more important.

One glance at our Winter Snapshot will make you proud to be a supporter.

Our goal is to raise $60,000 in our Summer Appeal – $40,000 is already committed by an incredibly generous donor.

Our promise to you is that we will always strive to achieve a lasting impact on behalf of our donors and the communities we serve.

On behalf of everyone at the Dolphin Research Institute, thank you.
