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

Jason de Caires Taylor ~ Underwater Sculptural Art & Conservation ~Artificial Reefs

Celebrating a unique Champion of the Seas, Jason de Caires Taylor, who through his underwater sculptural art helps to create artificial reef for our fragile and environmentally challenged Ocean.  His creative work draws people to the cause of the pressing need for protecting and caring for the ocean and the rest of our planet Earth:

Biography  (excerpt from his website ~

Born in 1974 to an English father and Guyanese mother, Taylor grew up in Europe and Asia, where he spent much of his early childhood exploring the coral reefs of Malaysia. Educated in the South East of England, Taylor graduated from the London Institute of Arts in 1998 with a BA Honours in Sculpture and went on to become a fully qualified diving instructor and underwater naturalist. With over 17 years diving experience under his belt, Taylor is also an award winning underwater photographer, famous for his dramatic images, which capture the metamorphosing effects of the ocean on his evolving sculptures.
In 2006, Taylor founded and created the world's first underwater sculpture park. Situated off the coast of Grenada in the West Indies it is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His latest creation is MUSA (Museo Subaquatico de Arte), a monumental museum with a collection of over 450 public sculptural works, submerged off the coast of Cancun, Mexico; described by Forbes as one of the world's most unique travel destinations. Both these ambitious, permanent public works have a practical, functional aspect, facilitating positive interactions between people and fragile underwater habitats while at the same relieving pressure on natural resources.
Taylor's art is like no other, a paradox of creation, constructed to be assimilated by the ocean and transformed from inert objects into living breathing coral reefs, portraying human intervention as both positive and life-encouraging. Numerous publications and documentaries have featured his extraordinary work, including the BBC, CNN, USA Today, the Guardian, Vogue, New Scientist and the Discovery Channel, yet nothing can quite do justice to the ephemeral nature of his art; for each actual visit to his sites is both unique and subject to the dynamic, fluctuating environment of the ocean.

"Song For the Ocean"

I just found a fantastic website with a positive thrust towards wellness and longevity for the Ocean .  It invites us all to take a step forward and sing along with Kirsten in her healing song for the Ocean.  I actually came across the song on facebook and was directed to the website ~ from there. 

"Song for the Ocean" and "Ethereal Matterial" on Facebook posted a poignant message for all the People of the World to take heed ... We must all take responsibility for the health of our Ocean and it's inhabitants. The song and video pretty much says it all so I am adding that link here at the bottom of this message. 

Kristen Calls out to Father Earth to hear the plea for healing and good welfare of the ocean and asks us to join in the song with our own well wishes for Mother Ocean.

She petitions us in her song, singing "This is the Song for the Ocean, Father Earth We are Calling Your Name.  We Know You are Taken For Granted But We Stand Here Committed to Change.  The Voices of the Children are Singing, Towards Tomorrows Horizon They Gaze,  Oh, This is the Song of the Ocean, Give Us Strength.."  ~ The message further unravels in a beautiful song she has written that is complimented by the ocean and ocean life in the background.
Please Listen and watch this Amazing Video for the Full Message:
Kristin is truly a Champion of the Seas!

Song for the Ocean
BY KRISTIN HOFFMANN  ~ My goal for the “Song for the Ocean” project is to get a minimum of 1 million people to join me in singing this song and together make this an official Anthem for the Ocean. As we sing, let’s hold the vision of a healthy planet, and make a commitment to the Earth and all it’s creatures, to be a part of positive change in whatever ways we can. You can sing this song on your own, in a group, a chorus, any way you can imagine. Videotape yourself or a group singing “Song for the Ocean” and upload your video to YouTube...I will add you to my favorites! I am going to keep a list of all people who sing on the song, so e-mail your names, and you can be one of the million voices! Also visit or

"For the Love of Dolphins"

Hello Ocean Friends.

I just found this poignant posting by JamieLynn2001 on the "Cyber Whale Warrior Blog" by Holise Cleveland titled   "For the Love of Dolphins" .   I recommend it to all.

I believe that is possible for one to gain insight into the captured dolphin's mind in "The Cove of Taiji" Japan, by seeing it through the mind of the dolphin, which is portrayed in the first half of this posting.   In the latter part of this blog post there is further explanation to the horrendous activity that takes place during the Taiji dolphin hunts.

Let it be also known that these hunts not only take a surplus of many dolphin lives, but also the lives of small whales that migrate through this region. (whales and dolphins are of the same family, but many people are unaware of this fact and think of them as separate)...  Unfortunately, one has not found a way to change their migratory courses, or been able to eliminate their dying days in the Cove by the hunters who kill them for dolphin meat and the sale of live dolphins for entertainment.

People are not allowed to intervene by Japanese Law.  They can only watch and record what takes place.  If they try to intervene, they are threatened with arrest.  Intervening may be as little as a reported "push"... Recently, and reportedly, one photographer activist was taken to jail for "intervening" in application of Japanese Law.  I have read that his trial date has been set for late January or February.  The dolphins are herded and taken in Japanese Waters, yet the dolphins are not Japanese.... They are mammals of the seas that travel through international waters.  They are loved by many, and hunted by few...  And generation after generation, by the many thousands, they continue to be deliberate targets of death and capture here in the Cove of Taiji.

And so with saddened heart, I fear the dolphins and whales, like so many other animals facing extinction today, will disappear via man's ignorance and greed in the not too distant future ~  if nothing is done to stop it.  And, I continue to pray in hope, that through written, video, and verbal expression to the world in continual public education and through public outcry, the Japanese will finally take responsibility themselves.  My hope is that they will then respond in a positive manner to halt this practice, changing a destructive path for the betterment of their own people, and in so doing, for the benefit of the world.

Here is that link again to the article:
"For the Love of Dolphins"

Thank you JamieLynn2001 for writing and posting this great article about the Dolphins of Taiji on the Cyber Whale Warrior Blog.  Your voice plays an important part of helping to create the necessary change for a better world for all of earth's inhabitants.  This is one small area of the earth, yet it plays an important role in all our existence.  The Ocean is a major & necessary part of our life, and the animals of the Seas all Play an Important Role in maintaining a Homeostatic Earth Environment.  We, the Human Race, are contaminating the ocean, and contaminating ourselves.  We continue to destroy and reap havoc on many, if not all life forms.   It is time for us to wake up and stop this insanity by taking an Active Role in correcting the wrongs that continue to be done in the name of progress and greed.   Human respect for the animals and their unique roles in life are a very real issue in maintaining and guaranteeing our own existence.
