The onslaught of endangered whales continues, while Japan ignores the real truth
It is time once again for Paul Watson and his group of merry men (and women) to brave the Antarctic seas in an attempt to disrupt and delay the extinction of a race.
I am talking about whales.
The Japanese to date have fabricated the need for whale meat, when giant frozen stores lie untouched in Japan. Why? Because less than two per cent of the Japanese population eat whale meat. Some don’t even know it is still being sold.
So why are whales being hunted by the Japanese and being killed? Read the rest of this entry »

In a recent blog from the New York Times, a “cushioned warning” has been recorded about whales,
made by President Obama against Iceland.
The warning is tantamount to saying how much the budget was cut, when in reality nothing was really “cut”.

The cool thing is that you can listen to whales right from your computer desktop, thanks to a new website.
The LIDO (Listening to the Deep Ocean Environment) site offers a live feed to 10 hydrophones sprinkled around European waters, and one in Canada. Several more are scheduled to come soon in Canada and in Asia.
The network’s primary aim is to record and archive long-term subsea noise so that researchers can study the effects of human activity on whales and dolphins. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s one thing for me to blog about my personal stories about interspecies communication such as whale communication and dolphin communication.
Or whales talking.
It’s another to hear it from a completely different part of the world.
Recently in New Zealand, rescuers were attempting to save a whale and it’s calf from being stranded on the shoreline, but without success.
As it turns out the whales were sending out distress signals, which was picked up by a nearby dolphin. The dolphin came quite close to the rescuers and the whales and was able to calm the two whales down.
The dolphin had to recognize that the two whales were endangered. Why? Well, once the whales calmed down, the dolphin then guided the whales out of the small lagoon to safety and freedom.
