Gowings Whale Trust - We can’t thrive unless our oceans do

We’re avid supporters of environmental awareness and sustainability, so much so that some years ago GPT owner, John Gowing began Gowings Whale Trust with the aim of increasing people’s knowledge, involvement and understanding of the humpback whale and to garner support for the beautiful creatures that we have the pleasure of seeing from our shorelines in whale-watching season.

These magnificent mammals work relentlessly to maintain our ocean ecosystem, regulate the flow of food and help to rectify the damage that us mere mortals do.

Each year from May to October whales dance around our coastline while spectators gather from all over the world and gaze in awe of their majestic beauty. The coming months are the perfect time to see these impressive animals display a range of spectacular surfacing behaviours.  

The humpback, in particular, delights coastal dwellers with its acrobatics as it makes its way through Australian waters and by increasing our understanding of this mammal, its environment and the impact man has upon it, we will have a greater chance of ensuring its survival.

When you shop at Gowings, 1% of all sales (and 100% of all Gowings Whale Trust merchandise sales) goes to the Gowings Whale Trust.

It’s dedicated to protecting our oceans and marine life – through raising awareness, marine research, preservation and other crucial direct-action causes
