Sad News About the Whales

People, it's not just the whales that are in trouble. Our entire oceanic ecosystem is on the verge of collapse. We need to educate ourselves TODAY, there is no time left to waste. Experts believe that the oceans will become unable to sustain life in any form within the next 40 years. That's not some nebulous "great great grandkids' lifetime" - that's within YOUR lifetime, and MY lifetime.

One day after attempted rescue, six stranded whales die on Australian beach
Six whales have died after becoming stranded on a southwest Australia beach, one day after conservation officials attempted to rescue them.
A pod of about 90 long-finned pilot whales were stranded on Hamelin Bay Tuesday. More than 70 of the mammals died, along with four dolphins, but about 10 whales were guided back out to sea by officials from the Australian Department of Environment and Conservation. Six of the rescued whales washed up on a different beach less than a day later. Three died of natural causes Wednesday, and the other three were shot by veterinarians due to their poor condition. The rest of the story....

Whale Song TV Ad - Is this Real?

If you need a smile today, take a look at this. At the end of the day, I know it's an ad, but I'd really like to know if the basic premise is authentic, because it's really moving. How can humans continue to hunt these magnificent mammals of the sea?

Rescued Australian Whales May Be Beached Again

Oh, no, this is awful! But I have to say it's wonderful to see all the people out there on the beach trying to save these magnificent animals. I hope the few that were actually saved find their way back out to sea.

Rescued Aus Whales May Be Beached Again
Eleven stranded whales who were returned to sea by rescuers in Australia are trying to return to shore. The long-finned whales are thought to be disoriented as they keep trying to swim back to the spot where they beached earlier this week.

"They're meandering around at the moment," Department of Environment and Conservation officer, Laura Sinclair, said. "It's not an unusual situation but we're just trying to guide them out further. If one strands itself again, it could put out distress signals to bring them all back."

Whales Stranded, Beached, Dying in Australia

Lately, there have been an unusual number of stranded whales in the Australia area. Large groups of them wash up, or become stranded, on beaches in Tasmania and elsewhere. This is terribly distressing. Most recently, more than 80 whales washed up along the coast of Australia over the weekend. Sadly at least 67 of those whales and dolphins died before rescuers could reach them. Earlier this month, 194 pilot whales and seven dolphins became stranded on a sandbar in Tasmania. Only 54 whales and dolphins survived to go back into the ocean.

What is causing this terrible tragedy? We need to find out, before we lose all these magnificent mammals (yes, whales are mammals, just like us).
Sea Shepherd T-shirt
Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd are two organizations that are actively trying to stop illegal whaling in our oceans. Support one, support the other, but spread the word that we humans need to be better stewards of our oceans and our environment, and we need to work together to save the whales.

Canvas Tote Bags - Their Time Has Come

At the end of February, my local grocery store started charging for plastic bags. And not a nickel or a dime, but .20. That's 20 cents. Now that might not sound like a lot, but I shop there almost every day, and rarely get out of there with just one bag.

Live Green Tote Bag

Doing the math, I see that if I end up getting 365 bags from them in a year, that comes to $73.00. Not a fortune, but for that amount of money I could buy a few canvas tote bags that have so many advantages over plastic, that it's crazy not to do it. Canvas shopping bags help the environment, they're much more attractive than plastic, they hold more, and let's face it, it's hip, trendy and important. I would love to see a few pictures of celebrities carrying their own tote bags into the grocery store, imagine what that would do for the cause!

So, with Earth Day approaching (April 22) we offer a selection of canvas totes available on the web, mostly at Cafepress and Zazzle. They range in price from $15 on up. Buy several, so you always have one or two in the car.
