Whales
"The tradition of freedom of the high seas has its roots in an era when there were too few people to seriously violate the oceans- but in hindsight that era ended some 150 years ago with the increase of global whaling."
-James Carlton in speech to University of Washington School of Marine Affairs, 1998
   
Water covers the majority of our great planet's surface, and it can be observed that next to space, the oceans are our last true frontier. It has been said in many different ways and cultures that our oceans are the "mother" of all humanity...

Although vast in size, they are certainly not endless, and the exploitation of their resources and species over the past 200 years has been nothing short of astounding and dramatic.

Combined with the similiar exploitation and destruction of our earths lakes, streams, and watersheds, the planet's water supply is in a current state of declining health and purity that can only be corrected by the same species responsible for its current state of fragility...

Let's do something about this dilemma... If our oceans and watersheds die, we die...


Stop the Harp seal hunt FEATURED ACTION ALERT OF THE YEAR:

CANADIAN HARP SEAL KILL

The annual Canadian Harp seal kill is the largest slaughter of any marine species of wildlife on the planet.

Subsidized by the government for pathetic and tragic reasons, this organized slaughter of the innocents is both cruel and senseless.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Educate yourself and others about the plight of the Harp seal.


Some KEY Organizations:

Here are a few of the more involved organizations working hard and making differences in the health and well being of our mother oceans and all the amazing forms of life they support:


OCEAN DEFENDERS ALLIANCE-

(Ocean Defenders Alliance (ODA) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit grassroots marine conservation organization based in Orange County, California, since 2002.  ODA strives to make Southern California's coastal waters safer for marine wildlife by reducing dangerous man-made objects from vital habitat, focusing on abandoned commercial fishing gear that poses serious threats to numerous species.  In the process of derelict gear removal, ODA carefully liberates wildlife found trapped in nets and pots that needlessly continue to capture and kill long after being lost by the fishing industry.


OCEANA

Their mission statement: "Oceana is a non-profit international advocacy organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the world's oceans through policy advocacy, science, law and public education. Founded in 2001, Oceana's constituency includes members and activists from more than 190 countries and territories who are committed to saving the world's marine environment. In 2002, American Oceans Campaign became part of Oceana's international effort to protect ocean eco-systems and sustain the circle of life. Oceana, headquartered in Washington, D.C., has additional offices in key U.S. coastal areas and will open offices in Latin America and Europe in 2003."

SHARK ANGELS

Their mission statement: "The Shark Angels are raising awareness on the plight facing sharks, giving the world a new perspective on these misunderstood animals, and often, in the trenches, stopping the slaughter of sharks, protecting them from our collective greed and ignorance.  Instead of talk, we are all about action. We are making a difference."
