What the whales need from us


The whale strandings and their subsequent executions on Kommetjie beach this past weekend have elicited many different and emotional responses from human animals. But not the responses I would like to see.

Just like the whale who swam up the Thames river about two years ago, these wonderful children from the sea came with a message for us. They literally laid their lives on the line screaming at us to pay attention to what we're doing to the oceans.

Pushing them back into what has become an inhospitable and toxic place for them is not what they need from us.

They are asking us to clean up our act. To stop oil and gas exploration using sonic booms that deafen them. These booms are causing whales to beach themselves because their primary method of orientation and communication - ie sound - has been destroyed.

They're asking us to stop corporations from dumping “at the smallest, 5,000,000 gallons per day of toxins…everything from benzene, acrylic nitrile, mercury, copper, you name it, they got it.” In 1997, the US Academy of Sciences estimated the total input of marine litter into the oceans, worldwide, at approximately 6.4 million tons per year.

Then there's the shipping traffic, nuclear tests and god knows what else going on in the oceans.

Let's start listening to these most beautiful of beings, these ancients of the ocean. One of the country's leading animal communicators and my teacher was on the beach with the dying whales and she had this to say afterwards:

"They chose the Cape beach so as not to have to navigate the stormy, rough seas around Cape Point in their weakened state, and because they want humans to witness (the) whales’ dying. On the bigger/planetary level too. They said “the Mother” (the ocean) is being poisoned, and so are they. It’s time humans woke up to this and witnessed the effects.

"They predicted that there will be more strandings in the next moon cycle (which I found interesting given that the International Whaling Commission sits again in the last week of June apparently.)

"The whales appreciate the compassion and care that people showed in trying to return them to the water, but would have wished to be given the choice, i.e. pointed out to sea/re-floated once, and then left to die in peace if and when they returned."

Another well known interspecies communicator had this to say:

"Most of us take the ocean and her children for granted. The whales are calling for us to pay attention."

THE WHALES NO LONGER FEEL SAFE IN THE OCEAN - WAKE UP HUMAN ANIMALS AND CHANGE YOUR WAYS BEFORE YOU DESTROY THE PLANET AND HENCE DESTROY YOURSELVES!

Jeez, when and how did humans become so selfish and so damn stupid?
