Donate today to support
Beluga Whale Alliance (BWA)!

We are currently a 100% volunteer and donation-based organization.

FEIN: 82-1520584

Beluga Whale Alliance (BWA) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the United States.

All donations and gifts are tax-deductible.


Beluga Whale Alliance (BWA) is based in Girdwood, Alaska, along a 40-mile stretch of shoreline that parallels critical habitat for Alaska’s endangered Cook Inlet beluga whales.

This distinct population segment (DPS) of belugas is listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)'s Red List… and is the inspiration behind the formation of Beluga Whale Alliance (BWA).

Charitable donations made today will help us to expand our ongoing efforts to support the recovery of our critically endangered Cook Inlet belugas, which include: seasonal shore-based monitoring of their movements & distribution; collaborating with new allies to build strategic partnerships to enhance their protection; educating the public; and most importantly, enabling locals and visitors to participate in specific recovery actions.

In addition to helping us implement our programs and projects aimed at supporting Cook Inlet beluga recovery, funds received during our current start-up phase will help us build a sustainable operating base — a vital next step to enabling us to carry out our mission of supporting the worldwide conservation of belugas by expanding our efforts beyond our current region of focus, going forward!

Every dollar (peso, krone, or ruble) comes directly to us.

If you’d like your donation to go to a specific department, program, or have any questions about how our funds are allocated, please contact us at
