News and Events

There's always something exciting going on at Faroe Whales Action Group!

Whalefest 2015

This year, for the first time ever, FWAG attended Whalefest in Brighton, UK with a stand in the main exhibition hall at the Brighton Centre. The event took place over the weekend of 14-15 March and was funded by donations made through our Fundrazr campaign on Facebook.


An estimated 15,000 people visited the festival this year and our stand was kept busy with a constant stream of visitors wanting to know more about the Faroe Islands and in particular the grindadráp. Many of those who came to see us there have now joined FWAG and we look forward to welcoming many more new members as our campaign progresses.

Due to the fantastic success of this year's event we are now busy planning for Whalefest 2016, where we hope our stand will be even bigger and better! More updates will be posted here over the coming weeks, so please keep checking for details!


If you would like to be part of the FWAG Whalefest team for 2016, please write to us at and one of our admins will get straight back to you. 

We Adore the Azores!

In late March 2015 two of our members will be visiting the Azores to see whales and dolphins in their natural habitat and also conducting an interview with an ex whaler.


See our news page for futher updates as we receive them!
