I am so honoured to be included in this video made by friends who are apart of a Bloggers Alliance for Dolphins and Whales. These Two Young People Inspire Me to Do Better EveryDay and it is heartwarming to me that they feel Inspired by my work and compassion to see an end to the capture, and slaughter of Dolphins and Whales for the Entertainment Industry.  Dolphins and Whales need to be free from slavery and they need to be left alone to live their lives in peace and harmony in our oceans.

Excert from the original post by Eric and Chasity A Family Standing Up For What They Believe In


Definition of Hero:

  • a man distinguished by exceptional courage and nobility and strength;

  • the principal character in a play or movie or novel or poem

  • champion: someone who fights for a cause 

  • These days I know that there are hero's all around us. Average people who just do the right thing. I also know that although I may find someone to be a hero, someone else might not agree. Everyone has their own idea's of what a hero is, regardless of definition. Some forgo the hero title and just call them role models. Thus, taking away the idea of super human powers and just making the person someone you should learn from and strive to be like. Regardless to how you look at it, these people should be celebrated.
      In the Activist world, there are so many people deserving of the title. From those that the world may know down to those that do so much work, but are not in the pubic eye. Today there are so many people that i look up to, for so many different reasons. I am surrounded by "Greats"! Their dedication and courage inspires me to be my best. Most of these people are there for me on a daily basis. They help lift me up when needed or are always there to just brainstorm with. I am blessed with the wisdom from the older generations and amazed by the determination of the younger ones. And although I know that none of them have super human powers, I sleep a little better at night, knowing these people are out there, fighting for our Earth.

    Dolphin and Cat

    This charming video of the interaction between a dolphin and a cat is just so heartwarming. The Love that the Dolphin shows to this little cat is just so touching. Dolphins are not fish, they are highly evolved intelligent sentient beings and do not deserve the fate that bestows them in the waters of Japan and Norway.

    Norway Whale Hunting Season Begins

    "It is disturbing on so many levels that whaling still exists in the 21st century. This barbaric practice needs to end and you have the ability to see the light about these truly magnificent creatures and really make a difference. Whales are part of the balance in our ecosystem and they are vital to our existence. They must be protected and cared for not slaughtered and butchered. They are innocent and do not deserve to be taken from this earth for human greed and consumption. There are many sustainable food sources available so the fact that they are eaten, even though their flesh is riddled with mercury, is not only an injustice to the whale, but also to the people consuming their toxic meat. I implore you to make a difference for your beautiful country and help to end whaling! Help to keep these loving creatures in the sea. I am sure one day you want your children as I do, to be able to stand at the sea and see life there not destruction… Be part of the solution not the problem." ..Niki Parker (Facebook post on the wall of Helga Pedersen)
      April 1st is the beginning of the annual whale slaughter in Norway. In definace of an IWC ban on commercial whaling, the government of Norway has authorized the slaughter of 1,286 minke whales between now and August.

    Norway has more than 100 diplomatic and consular missions located all over the world. All of these have their own websites, which provide information for the local population and for Norwegian nationals in the host country. Select the appropriate continent:

    When you contact the appropriate embassy please say: Vennligst stopp drepe hval (Please stop killing whales in Norwegian)

    Here is the contact information for the Prime Minister of Norway: Jens Stoltenberg

    Here is the contact information for the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Norway: Jonas Gahr Store

     Here is the contact information for the Fisheries Minister of Norway: Helga Pedersen 

    From a Facebook post by Elora May West on the wall of Helga Pedersen (which has been deleted)
    "There is absolutely no place for Whaling in the 21st Century! By supporting this barbaric act not only are you slaughtering apex predators we need to survive on this planet and killing a being smarter than we are... But you are feeding the people of your country mercury! Please do some research and understand why whaling needs to end!!! Money is not worth the destruction of our Ocean, our Environment, and our Home! There is one Earth... we have one chance... please don't be apart of the problem" 
    Please get involved: these magnificent cetaceans need us to speak on their behalf! 
    Thank you
