Your April whale and dolphin news

How you can help stop whaling and some great news on our campaign to end captivity.

News from the world of whales and dolphins

Hi

I thought I’d share this wonderful image of a minke whale with you. This beautiful whale is a symbol for me of how all whales should be – living their lives, undisturbed in the ocean, without the threat of a harpoon.

You can help us stop the whale hunts

I’m sure you were as saddened as I was to hear that Japan’s whaling boats returned from their Antarctic hunt with 333 minke whales. After the outcry it sparked last year, the Japanese government hasn’t yet released figures on how many of them were pregnant. If we go by the 2016 figures then we can guess that well over 100 of the whales they killed could have been carrying a baby.

You can help. If you have a Twitter account, please take part in our action and ask the EU to say ’no‘ to a trade deal with Japan while Japan kills whales. And please make a small donation to help fund our campaign – even a gift of just £3 or £5 will help.

I have some good news for you too – travel industry giant, Thomas Cook, is taking great strides in the right direction by reviewing its stance on promoting captive whale and dolphin facilities. I’ll bring you more news on that next month as well as on the progress we are making in our project to create the world’s first sanctuary for ex-captive beluga whales.

Until then, thank you for being part of WDC. We couldn’t be here for whales and dolphins without you!

With very best wishes,

Julia Thoms, WDC campaigns manager

Take action – stop whaling

Japan’s whalers returned from their Antarctic hunt with 333 whales. In just over four months they killed 178 females and 155 males despite global condemnation. Please join the growing community who want these hunts to stop.

Well done Thomas Cook

Thomas Cook will drop tours to some captive dolphin parks in response to public pressure. We are making great progress in our campaign to stop UK holiday companies supporting whale and dolphin captivity. Thank you for your brilliant support!

Tell TobyMac, Francesca Battistelli, and Skillet to Cancel SeaWorld Performances!

Action Alert

http://www.seaworldofhurt.com/rip-tilikum/
Just one week after Tilikum’s tragic death, SeaWorld Orlando is putting on a Christian music festival called Praise Wave in a desperate attempt to lure people to its failing theme park. Even though top singers—such as Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, and Trace Adkins—as well as dozens of other bands canceled their performances at the abusement park, TobyMac, Francesca Battistelli, and Skillet are still set to participate, which will lead unknowing Christians to support a company that forces highly intelligent orcas to do confusing tricks and live in concrete tanks that are, to them, the size of a bathtub.

Please ask these musicians to set an example of what it means to be a good steward of God’s creation by canceling their performances at Praise Wave.

TADAMMMMMM ………..Neuigkeit zur Petition: Kampf gegen den Klimawandel verloren? Bitte schreiben Sie an den Chefredakteur der ZEIT

https://www.change.org/p/klaus-brinkb%C3%A4umer-berichten-sie-w%C3%B6chentlich-%C3%BCber-den-klimawandel/u/18322634

Weiden, Deutschland

1. Nov. 2016 — Liebe Unterstützer,
in ihrer aktuellen Ausgabe berichtet die Wochenzeitung DIE ZEIT über die Einfälle (verrückter?) Wissenschaftler, die technische Verfahren zur Abmilderung des Klimawandels ersinnen. In der Ankündigung zu dem Dossier „Die Reparatur der Erde“ heißt es: „Trotz aller Abkommen und Beschlüsse – der Kampf gegen den Klimawandel scheint verloren. Um ihn doch noch zu gewinnen, wollen Ingenieure die Ozeane düngen, den Himmel verspiegeln und Kohlendioxid versteinern.“
Wenn der Kampf tatsächlich verloren sein sollte, tragen die Medien eine Mitschuld daran, weil sie nicht regelmäßig und gründlich über die gefährliche menschengemachte Veränderung des Klimas auf der Erde berichten.
Deshalb meine Bitte:
Schreiben Sie an den Chefredakteur der ZEIT Giovanni di Lorenzo, bedanken Sie sich für den Bericht und fordern Sie die Zeitung auf, in einem festen Ressort wöchentlich über den Klimawandel zu berichten.
leserbriefe@zeit.de
Hier ein Formulierungsvorschlag (noch wirksamer wäre ein eigener Text):
Sehr geehrter Herr di Lorenzo,
vielen Dank an Sie und Ihre Redakteure für den kritischen Bericht zum Thema „Reparatur der Erde“ durch Climate Engineering im Dossier vom 27.10.2016. Das Thema Klimawandel ist so wichtig wie kein anderes, denn die Folgen des Klimawandels sind hochgefährlich und unumkehrbar. Deshalb meine Bitte an Sie:
Berichten Sie wöchentlich in einem festen Ressort über den Klimawandel, wie es der britische Guardian heute schon tut. Nur eine starke Klimaschutzbewegung kann genügend Druck auf die Politik ausüben, die nötigen Maßnahmen zu ergreifen, z.B. erneuerbare Energien fördern, Abkehr von der Ideologie des grenzenlosen Wirtschaftswachstums, Kohlekraftwerke abschalten usw. So eine Bewegung kann nur wachsen, wenn die Medien regelmäßig und zuverlässig über die Gefahren des Klimawandels – und die Lösungen – berichten.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Bitte schreiben Sie auch an den Chefredakteur des SPIEGEL, Klaus Brinkbäumer
leserbriefe@spiegel.de
Zum Beispiel folgenden Text (oder, noch besser, einen selbst verfassten Text):
Sehr geehrter Herr Brinkbäumer,
die ZEIT brachte Ende Oktober in ihrem Dossier einen kritischen Bericht zum Thema „Reparatur der Erde“ durch Climate Engineering. Leider vermisse ich im SPiEGEL in letzter Zeit ausführliche Berichte zum Thema Klimawandel. Dabei ist es so wichtig wie kein anderes, denn die Folgen des Klimawandels sind hochgefährlich und unumkehrbar. Deshalb meine Bitte an Sie:
Berichten Sie wöchentlich in einem festen Ressort über den Klimawandel, wie es der britische Guardian heute schon tut. Nur eine starke Klimaschutzbewegung kann genügend Druck auf die Politik ausüben, die nötigen Maßnahmen zu ergreifen, z.B. Abkehr von der Ideologie des Wirtschaftswachstums, erneuerbare Energien fördern, Kohlekraftwerke abschalten usw. Und so eine Bewegung kann nur wachsen, wenn die Medien regelmäßig und zuverlässig über die Gefahren des Klimawandels – und die Lösungen – berichten.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Vielen Dank für Ihre Unterstützung!
Herzliche Grüße

„Delfine gehören nicht in Gefangenschaft!“

https://www.change.org/p/delfinarium-im-zoo-duisburg-schlie%C3%9Fen

Delfinarium im Zoo Duisburg schließen!

Delfine gehören nicht in Gefangenschaft!

Es gibt in Deutschland nur noch zwei Delfinarien, im Tiergarten Nürnberg und im Zoo-Duisburg, und das hat einen guten Grund. Delfine schwimmen normalerweise in ihrem natürlichen Umfeld über 40 Meilen am Tag und erreichen bis zu ca. 55km/h. Delfine sind intelligente und sich selbst bewusste Tiere, die in „Schulen“ zusammen leben, jagen, spielen und lernen. All dies kann ein kleines Becken in einem Zoo/Delfinarium nicht bieten!

Delfine gehören in ihren natürlichen Lebensraum und nicht dem extremen Stress und Qualen, durch jubelnde und schreiende Zuschauer, sowie gefrorenen Fisch und kleinen Becken, ausgesetzt. Daher fordern wir die Schliessung des Teilbereiches, Delfinlagune, im Zoo-Duisburg.

Mein Name ist Fabian Neubüser, ich bin 17 Jahre alt und engagiere mich seit einigen Jahren im Meeresschutz.

Zeigen wir den Delfinarien, dass sie nicht mehr erwünscht sind!

Vielen Dank!

Vorsitzender Detlef Hamacher

Gegen Delfine in Gefangenschaft! Don’t buy a ticket!
Delfinarien sind ein überflüssiges Überbleibsel aus Zeiten der Unwissenheit.
Wir sagen „Nein“ zu den, noch, bestehenden zwei Delfinarien in Deutschland. Schenken Sie den Delfinen ein Würdiges und vor allem Artgerechtes Leben, welches nur das Meer bieten kann.
Wir zeigen Ihnen hiermit das Delfinarien nicht, noch länger, geduldet und erwünscht sind und fordern die Stilllegung der Delfinarien.

Your September whale and dolphin news

News from the world of whales and dolphins

Hi  and welcome to your September e-News from WDC, Whale & Dolphin Conservation. It’s a busy time here (when isn’t it?) as our teams get ready to fight for whales and dolphins at two international meetings. There’s more on that below, as well as some news to make you smile!

On Saturday, our experts will be in Johannesburg at the meeting of CITES, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species – the place where decisions are made about which species can be bought and sold. We have a clear mission – we hope to help stop the illegal trade in bottlenose dolphins of the Black Sea. Find out more in the first story below.

Meanwhile, our Stop Whaling team are preparing for the meeting of the International Whaling Commission in Slovenia next month. We are going with a very important goal – to bring an end to Japan’s so-called ’scientific whaling‘. I’ll bring you more on that in next month’s e-News.

As we approach pay day, if you have just a couple of pounds, euros or dollars to spare, please consider sponsoring WDC super-supporter Eloisia Wild and her Herculean efforts to keep dolphins wild and free. ,if you and everyone who receives this email gives just £5, it would help pay for our efforts to keep bottlenose dolphins wild and free in the Black Sea.

Thank you for your continued support – the dolphins are lucky to have you on their side!

FULL MOON

Hello Soul Family!

The August Full Moon on the 18th is the end of a cycle that started in March of this year. This cycle was about Clear out the Old to make room for the New.  The Old is all the things that no longer serve you that are keeping you from becoming Who You Truly Are. 

April to July was a time of Self Contemplation to understand your Passion and put yourself on the Path to Achievement. During this time you may have experienced feeling ungrounded, not trusting your own feelings, indecision, inability to stand up for oneself, feeling a lack of direction or the one step forward two steps back cycle, fear and/or physical discomforts. 

All of this confusion is ending and the August Full Moon will bring everything to a happy conclusion of Closure and Completion.  As you begin your New Cycle, the Full Moon will clearly light your Path.
I love you All,
Grandma
Your continued commitment to work with me is
deeply appreciated.
