Really worth a watch! UNC-Asheville professor, Dee Eggers discusses dolphins as persons and ideas for protecting them and other species that face extinction.
CCTV America’s Mike Walter spoke to Howard Garrett, the co-founder of the Orca Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the plight of killer whales.
Check out the great work done by the AVAAZ community:
For years, Icelandic millionaire badboy Kristjan Loftsson has massacred hundreds of endangered giant fin whales. But no more!! Working with allies, a million of us pressed the Dutch government to close their ports to him, then German Avaazers helped to block ports there too. Then we caused a media and political storm in the Caribbean where Loftsson’s ship was registered. After years of pressure, he’s called off the hunt!
“The global pressure brought by the Avaaz community has no doubt played a big role in Loftsson’s welcome decision.”
– Vanessa Williams-Grey, Whale and Dolphin Conservation.

Could we speak the language of dolphins?
Beautifully answered by the incredible Denise Herzing.
For 28 years, Denise Herzing has spent five months each summer living with a pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins, following three generations of family relationships and behaviors. It’s clear they are communicating with one another — but is it language? Could humans use it too? She shares a fascinating new experiment to test this idea.
