Save whales (and yourself) from commercial whaling

Something that stood out to me when I first watched Sea Shepherd‘s Whale Wars was that they called themselves an environmental organization, not an animal rights/welfare group. This was one of the few times I saw someone other than myself claim to be helping more than just animals, but the environment and people, too.

Not only are we all connected in a greater sense, but one of these three (humans, animals, environment) cannot thrive without the either (okay, so I’m not too sure about the first helping the others, but I know humans would not be able to get along without the environment and animals).

One animal that is an enormous help to people is the whale. Whales help monitor and keep our oceans clean. Without our oceans, we wouldn’t have enough oxygen and I think you can imagine what a problem that would cause. So, by helping our oceans and whales, you are helping yourself and all humans.

Please take a few minutes to sign this petition “encouraging the UK to help end commercial whaling” and, if you’re in the USA, you can sign this one, too! Thank you!

I signed it! I guess I never really thought it the way you put it. I like the idea that we’re not only helping the animals, but we’re also helping ourselves and everyone else! Do people not realize the harm that they are causing not only to the animals but to themselves? I had no idea that the whales monitor and kept the oceans clean. And without them, we would lost oxygen. Do others not realize that? I just don’t get it. Its not right to even be killing off the whales but they don’t see it like that. I may be a little too optimistic but I would think that if they new they were potentially killing off a lot of our oxygen supply, they would stop, wouldnt they???

Please write a comment: I'd love to hear your thoughts!
