Hello Friends of the Seas! Welcome to My Ocean Friendly Blog. I made this blog in support of the Creatures of the Seas and their Human Champions, Fighting for their Cause.

I have posted some of my favorite Champions here, and on some I have included a brief Notation of their Purpose at the bottom of this first page. You Must "Click" on the Older Posts, to pull up older posts. You will find that on the bottom of each page, and to the right of each page. I have also Included many Links to other blog and websites for you to expore. They are on the right column of the pages.

If you have a blog that is of focus on Healing of the Oceans and their Inhabitants, please let me know.

Although all Ocean Inhabitants are important, a special focus here is on the order Cetaceans (ceta is greek and latin for whale) or Marine Mammals of which the family Delphindae (meaning Dolphins) belongs. Like all mammals, they must breathe air. They also give live birth, and nurse their newborns with milk. Whales, Dolphins and porpoises belong to this group. That means Whales are actually large dolphins. Whales are the largest and porpoises are the smallest of the Cetaceans. Dolphins are not fish as some may think, and they are considered second to human beings in their intelligence and I believe they have an advanced intelligence far beyond some humans. The Japanese Dolphin Hunters have been, and still are relentlessly driving dolphins in the Cove of Taiji to Their Deaths and Capture, and other people are contributing to their plight by supporting the entertainment arenas around the world and eating their meat.

The Dolphins of Taiji are Close to My Heart at this Time, so I wrote a Poem for them "Shout Out For the Dolphins of Taiji" and to Challenge the World to Helping them Overcome Their Plight.

Here is that link:

I also Support other Sea Life and their Champions, and I am Open to Suggestions for improvement or new information, so please offer any constructive comments you may have in the comment sections. Please Note the Champions of the Seas Links on the Right and Support them if Your Heart Desires. Alone we create a Ripple in the Ocean, and Together we Create a Wave... Let Our Voices Be Heard! Thank YOU

"The Whalers Have Been Shut Down"

First of all I must say, that I do not hold the Japanese People responsible for this practice, but the Japanese Fisheries and the Whale Hunters are the offenders, and I am relieved and ecstatic the lives of whales this year, have been spared in this sanctuary from the whale hunters/poachers.

Per Captain Paul Watson, of the Sea Shepherd, "The Japanese Fisheries Agency is saying that the whale hunt (in the Southern Ocean) has been suspended due to the interventions of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society..."

The Sydney Morning Herald @ reads in part: "The sudden departure has raised hopes Japan may be moving to end its widely opposed, 23-year-old "scientific research" program, which has killed about 10,000 Antarctic whales.... The whaling industry is also suffering at home in Japan, with revenue falling as whale meat sales plummet, and with key figures in the Fisheries Agency of Japan forced to apologize for running a black market in the meat."

The Japanese Whalers have been in a Whale Sanctuary in their annual hunt with the factory ship, the Nisshin Maru, and three harpoon vessels under the auspice of Research since the latter part of last year.  But killing and selling for profit is suspected as their main purpose there. Now that their hunt is suspended, many whales have been saved from the harpoons of the whalers by Sea Shepherd and Sea Shepherd alone, relentlessly chasing their fleets and driving them from the Antarctic Region.
