Who is Action for Dolphins? 

At Action for Dolphins, we’re leading a change for the betterment of dolphin lives. We work from the shores of Japan where we campaign to halt the devastating dolphin hunts, to Australia’s coastline where we’re advocating to remove harmful shark nets. Our recent victory in banning dolphin breeding in New South Wales is the kind of institutional change we achieve. 

Our work extends to protecting marine life and the ocean they call home. We showcase how people can encounter marine life in a responsible way, and advocate for the end of captivity. We also advocate to help protect our marine environment for future generations by securing strong nature laws and pollution reduction campaigns.

  • Craft compelling and engaging content, including video reels, static posts and stories for our social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
  • Engage with our followers and respond to queries in a respectful manner.
  • Stay informed about marine conservation issues, particularly those affecting dolphins, to ensure the content we create is timely and engaging.

  • A strong interest in social media and digital marketing and familiarity with social media platforms and analytics tools.

  • A creative flair, with an eye for design and attention to detail.
  • Self-motivated and reliable, with the ability to work independently.

What do we offer?
