Play a part – Adopt a whale
Many animals face the threat of extinction today and whales are one of them.
Whales are at the top of the food chain and have an important role in the overall health of the marine environment. Unfortunately their large size and mythical aura does not protect them; seven out of the 13 great whale species are classified as endangered or vulnerable, even after decades of protection.
There are many non-profit organizations which are trying to help . One of them is Pacific Whale Foundation.
Pacific Whale Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1980 to save whales from extinction. Their mission is to protect our oceans. They have research studies going on in different parts of the world. In short, they are active participants in global efforts to address threats to whales and other marine life.
Pacific Whale Foundation was an early leader in educating the public, from a scientific perspective, about whales and the need for ocean conservation.
Want to be a part of this Whale-y action?
Simple. Adopt a whale.
Pacific Whale Foundation had a original idea . To give everyone an opportunity to be part of a community project by ” Adopt a Whale” programme. There are also adoption programmes for dolphins and turtles.You would be able to learn about the life of one very special whale, dolphin or turtle in the Pacific Region. The Adopt a whale system works via a donation and the packages are based on the amount of the donation.
” Small fish can make a WHALE of a difference.”
How does it work ?
The donations ranges from $25- $1000.
If you make a 25$ symbolic donation you would receive the story of your individual whale, a customize “Adopt a whale” certificate and a map tracing the movement of your adopted whale in the ocean and of course if you raise donations, more options can be added. You may even have a whale named after you !
