WDC welcomes and encourages open discussion on our social media sites – including but not limited to our blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels.

We are aware that some subject matter (dolphin hunts, whale slaughter, captivity etc) does elicit very passionate feelings and some extreme views. However, please refrain from using sexist, or racist comments, profanities, or threats of a violent nature. Anyone doing so will be warned and their comments may be deleted.

Remember, once you post something online, it’s there for hundreds of thousands to see, so please be thoughtful about your comments.

We make every reasonable effort to monitor participation to ensure that conversations remain ‘on topic’ and are courteous. However, our capacity to monitor all comments is limited and there may be occasions when comments might slip our attention, and we apologise in advance if this does happen.
