The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG), was formed in December 1990. Success quickly followed when six months later on the 7th of June 1991, the Irish Government declared Ireland an Irish Whale and Dolphin Sanctuary. This was a remarkable first achievement of the newly formed group. Throughout the intervening thirty plus years, the IWDG strived to make Ireland an “Effective Sanctuary”.
