I am writing this post in support of the efforts of Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. This is a call to action to the WordPress blogging community. For the past few days, many of us have followed and posted about the status of the 12 orca whales trapped in the ice in Quebec. The Facebook and blog posts were flying faster ‘n speeding bullets and the comments were off the charts. Meanwhile, Captain Paul Watson and the crew of The Sea Shepherd fleet were preparing for their next dangerous and sure-to-be-bloody battle on the front lines of the war on poachers who are planning to begin the slaughter of literally thousands of whales within the next 10 days.
This plea for help is being sent out to all of those who claim dedication to the welfare, protection and convervation of our planet and our wildlife. I challenge all bloggers to begin utilizing the written word as a mighty tool . . . to raise public awareness to the highest levels of action, to reach influencial members of society and to demand action by world leadership, who currently are not illustrating the level of concern necessary to stop these heinous, criminal acts against our oceans, the animals that live there and to the human species.
We are living in desperate times. These times require that all available humans dedicate themselves and their abilities to the channeling of passionate intensity for the entirity of at-risk whales. Those on the front lines, such as The Sea Shepherd, are putting their lives at risk in defense of 1000,s of innocent, precious lives. They need immense amounts of support
