The Dutch Postcode Lottery (Nationale Postcode Loterij) was founded in 1989 to support charities working towards a just, healthy and green world. The lottery raises funds for its charities and publicises their work. Since the Postcode Lottery was founded, more than 7.3 billion euros have been donated to people and nature. 

IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) received a generous contribution of € 1.5 million in 2022 from the Dutch Postcode Lottery to further scale up the protection of whales, dolphins and porpoises through IFAW’s re:solve project. Re:solve optimises the post-release of stranded cetaceans through an enhanced and innovative global rescue, rehabilitation and release program, and through the reduction of human-caused threats to ensure animals are released back into safer and more secure habitats. An integral part of this is the Blue Speeds campaign that focusses on the creation of a safer, healthier and quieter ocean for whales by reducing underwater noise and ship strikes. Part of this campaign is a petition that calls for European Union (EU) institutions to make reduced ship speeds a condition to enter EU shipping ports.
