“With the most massive brains on the planet, whales are also the largest creatures that have ever lived. They have been swimming in earth’s oceans for over 40 million years. These highly social and sophisticated communicators roam through every one of the world’s oceans, which cover over 70 percent of the earth’s surface. Whales and oceans: big, old stuff. If we could comprehend their language, what would these tremendous, ancient creatures be telling us? Historically the human whale relationship has been layered, tangled and circuitous. Our reliance on whale oil (energy) and excessive resource consumption brought numerous species to the brink of extinction. But the 1946 the International Whaling Commission created conservation protections (hunting limits) that have allowed successful regeneration of many species. While, not all was solved, (whale populations continue to be endangered) if we could hear the lyrics, the whale song just might remind us that through conservation, creative alternatives to energy and sustainable stewardship of our resources, we can make a difference. Vote our planet.” –Britt
