WHY PROTECT WHALES AND DOLPHINS?

Whales and dolphins are remarkable. But why are they so important? Why do we need to end captivity, stop whaling, prevent their deaths in fishing nets, and protect areas of ocean? What is so special about whales and dolphins?

COMMERSON'S DOLPHIN CALF DIES AT SEAWORLD

23 MAY 2017 - 9:59AM

[uk.whales.org]

A newborn Commerson's dolphin calf has died at SeaWorld's Aquatica water park in Orlando just minutes after being born.

While SeaWorld is well known for the orcas it has in captivity, it also holds over 150 dolphins including four Commerson's, which have distinctive black and white markings. The calf's mother, Ringer, is 16 years old and had been on birth control to prevent her becoming pregnant. Three male dolphins are also held at the park.

This was the fifth pregnancy for Ringer; none of her previous pregnancies had been successful. SeaWorld has said this will be the last group of Commerson's dolphins to be held at the park.

(As well it should be. 16 years old and 5 Dead Babies!)

Join us this World Oceans Day for the exclusive USA Premiere screening of "Jeedara the Film" documenting our fight to keep oil giants out of the Great Australian Bight.
See the amazing trailer here - jeedarathefilm.org
In 2010 BP was responsible for the worlds largest oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico. Over several months, the rig spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the ocean, killing millions of animals and destroying the surrounding environment.
Less than a year later, the Australian Government signed papers allowing BP to come to Australia and drill in deeper and rougher seas.
In 2016 The Great Australian Bight Alliance announced the launch of 'Operation Jeedara' - a campaign that would see the 'Steve Irwin' sail into the heart of the Great Australian Bight to document the beauty of the region in order to showcase what we would all stand to lose if we let BP drill there.
This film is the story of the campaign, that showcases one of the last big marine wilderness areas on Earth, Nature on a grand scale, and one of the big environmental wins of 2016.
Guaranteed to be a visual feast - See the amazing trailer here - jeedarathefilm.org
