Willem and the Whales (an IWC PSA)

A PSA about commercial whaling told through the eyes of a child.

Not only do I have the pleasure of knowing this sweet little man but as a coastal native I share a love for all things aquatic and a fierce desire to save our animals and resources.

If you havnt seen this video please take a moment, it will surely brighten your day. Even though the time to vote has passed the whales still need our help and if your kids are old enough to be inspired by this video encourage them write a letter or draw a picture to send to our president, local representative, or senator.

I think its important to pass on compassion, caring , and awareness of what is going on in our world to our children.

Find out more about the June 21st IWC Vote at , Marine Mammal Conservation Through the Arts.

Commercial whaling is unacceptable. On June 21, 2010, the U.S. Delegate to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) plans to vote to suspend the 25-year ban on commercial whaling.

There is still time to make a difference. Sign the NRDC petition and tell President Obama to keep his campaign promise of strengthening the global moratorium on commercial whaling!

NRDC Petiton:

President Obama said it himself: "Allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable" -- Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, March 16, 2008.
