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

Eighty Nine Nations ready for verbal 'Whale Wars' in the Channel Islands

Eighty Nine Nations are ready for verbal 'Whale Wars' in the Channel Islands - Washington DC Animal Advocacy |

The International Whaling Commission was established following the creation of a 1946 international environmental agreement known as the "International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling".  Although the purpose was to protect whales from over hunting and to preserve whale stocks for future generations, exploitation continues to occur even within it's own IWC realm.

"There are presently 89 member nations of the IWC.  In 1986, the IWC adopted a moratorium on commercial whaling.  Despite the ban, numerous loopholes within IWC regulations and enforcement allow for several nations to continue to hunt whales, Among them are Japan, Norway, Iceland and the Faroes Islands."...  Sandy McElheney ~ (Sandy McElhaney is a member of the writing team at "Save Misty the Dolphin". This group was founded on facebook to raise awareness about the plight...) 

These countries are allowed to hunt with little overseeing by the IWC, and show little concern or regard of the loss of life, and consequences of numerous kills.

In a compiling letter to Dr. Simon Brockington, Secretary of The International Whaling Commission, "Save Misty the Dolphin" calls on the members of the 63rd International Whaling Commission to fully PROTECT all whales and dolphins. This letter also encourages concerned citizens around the world to join in by submitting similar letters.
