The relationship between cetaceans and humans has been in the news lately.
Much of it is discouraging. While many people work hard to free orcas from oceanaria in Florida and San Diego, boaters are increasingly crowding Puget Sound’s resident orcas away from their fast-dwindling food supply. In Baja, Mitsubishi finally decides under pressure not to mine salt in one of the gray whales last unspoiled breeding grounds.
These issues may seem unrelated, although they indirectly address the recently proposed concept of The Cetacean Nation. I begin this essay with a general critique of that proposal. Then comes the proposal itself as conceived by its promoters.As always, the visionary relationship humans have with cetaceans provides a harbinger of how we should be relating to all of nature. When you finish reading the proposal below, read it again in a week or a month, but this time swap grizzly bear, or green turtle, or trumpeter swan for every reference made here to cetaceans.
