FCS is a proud supporter of The Gowings Whale Trust (GWT) that was established to increase people’s knowledge, involvement and understanding of the Humpback Whale through public education.
The Humpback delights coastal dwellers with its acrobatics as they make their annual migrations through our oceans, and by increasing our understanding of this mammal, its environment and the impact man has upon it, we will have a greater chance of ensuring its survival.
In 2016 GWT formed a partnership with Sea Shepherd, donating an RIB chase boat named ‘Whale Warrior’ which will sit on-board the new Ocean Warrior vessel, and be used to fight illegal whaling activities off Antarctica.
A range of shirts, hats and accessories can be purchased via the Whale Trust section on the FCS website.
All funds go towards selected research projects focused on the life, habits and ultimately preservation of this magnificent species. Anyone who makes a donation also receives a ‘Whale Futures’ certificate that acknowledges their contribution.
