Originally founded in 2014 as a small Facebook group focussed on researching and learning about the Faroese grindadráp, Faroe Whales Action Group has steadily grown to well over a thousand members and continues to expand its horizons in the hope of finding a way to permanently end the hunting of whales and dolphins in the Faroe Islands.
Through our team of volunteers, industry experts, the media, political and social leaders, and the Faroese themselves, we aim to raise awareness and educate people on the issues of the grindadráp. We would also like to see the Faroe Islands evolve into a haven for whale watching and generate a desire within the Faroese community to appreciate, value and protect all small cetaceans living and swimming freely in Faroese waters.
If you would like to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join us on Facebook at Faroe Whales Action Group. We'll be delighted to welcome you to our pod!
Meet the volunteers and just a few of the people we've helped thanks to your support.
