WhaleFest - where the world speaks for whales and dolphins. On 15-16 March 2014, 10,000 people attended from 37 countries (the third year we've doubled in size!) - check out whale-fest.com and facebook.com/pages/WhaleFest/108656792611093?ref=hl
Our event is filled with regular people, people just like you or I who are captivated by these inspiring animals. In ‘50 Things to do Before You Die’ BBC viewers put whale watching as their No.4 ‘must do’ and swimming with wild dolphins was a clear winner at No1! WhaleFest brings together all those enthusiastic people in a global community that gives whales and dolphins a powerful voice. By telling their stories in the most accessible and entertaining way, we inspire more people than ever before - building an army of ambassadors to defend them, their communities and their ocean home.
And it’s fun! At WhaleFest there were expert talks, indoor whale watch trips, a Submarine experience, Ocean Story Tellers, dance, music and so much more. Plus we were in schools, train stations, cafes and restaurants, on the streets, painting whale murals on walls and floors, displaying life-sized whales, plus hoisting a life-sized replica Orca back to ocean freedom attended by thousand of spectators.
Be part of something big. Be part of the next WhaleFest, 13-15 March 2015 at the Brighton Centre.
