Endangered Whales: An Urgent Call for Help

The Kimberley is one of the nine regions of Western Australia. It is in the northern part of Western Australia, bordered on the west by the Indian Ocean, on the north by the Timor Sea, on the south by the Great Sandy and Tanami Deserts, and on the east by the Northern Territory.

We are trying to stop the mass industrialization of one of the rarest environments on Earth – the magnificent Kimberley, Australia – nursery and breeding grounds for Humpback Whales

Its pristine coast is home to the largest population of Humpback whales in the world – over 33,000 return each year to mate or give birth to the next generation of whales.

The largest protected areas are the Prince Regent Nature Reserve and the Drysdale River National Park along with Gregory National Park and Keep River National Park across in the Northern Territory which preserve similar habitats, (and indeed Keep River’s nearest town is Kununurra in the Kimberley).

The problem is, though, that while the land is being protected, the oceans surrounding Kimberly are not and neither are the whales.

Mother and child - they are safe now, but their habitat is soon to be taken over by big business. It's an old story and all about profit.

Unfortunately this is where big business and big profits are concerned. The Australian government is planning a mega gas hub which will send 50 supertankers each week right through the middle of the nursery. Mothers and their children will not survive, simply because there have been no measures taken to care for these magnificent, sentient and gentle beings.

For those who care, we have set up an online petition trying to let people know about this catastrophic situation and to ask for support to get the information out around that world with the goal to make the Aust government accountable. That is Step One. Step Two is to not allow the industrialisation of this magic marine wonderland. Also home to turtles, whalesharks, dugongs and dolphins as well as some of the best and last great coral reefs in the world.

The Kimberly is a magical place and now earmarked for destruction.

Hear our  SOS: Sign the petition link and pass this knowledge on to your wonderful friends.

We cannot allow the death of any whales let alone the destuction of the pod globally. Ignoring this is ignoring our own demise on the frail and tiny blue planet. We are the conservators of this planet. When we stop caring, what happens next, happens to us all.

    On behalf of all the whales in the kimberley we thank you. The Indigenous community all around Australia has planned a wonderful smoking ceremony on 1 Sept in all their special coastal places to send out a very special message to Grandmother Whale and tell her we hear your pleas for help and we are uniting with all people everywhere to fight to save you, your home and your future. The Kimberley is calling all of us and I thank the wonderful Whalepeople for helping send out this urgent SOS. We are indeed connected to this magnificent and unique creature. The image of Mum and baby is stunning. Whales rock. love Ella (6) and Lucy (4) and our Nan.
