Sign the Petition for the South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary Now

Dear Whale friends,
Please sign this petition to add your voice to those calling for a South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary. Thanks to other IFAW supporters like you, we already have more than 35,000 signatures. Please help us reach our goal of 100,000 names in time for the next International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting, which starts on June 23rd, 2008, in Santiago, Chile.
A commitment to conservation

This year, Commission members will consider a proposal to create a South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary that would extend across the South Atlantic, from the coast of South America to the coast of Africa, and on down towards Antarctica.

The vote on the South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary provides a vital opportunity for the IWC to show that it is committed to whale conservation.
Please sign the petition!

Have a whale of a time!

Happy whales ;)

The Summer Solstice Celebration at Stonehenge 2008

The Summer Solstice Celebration at Stonehenge 2008 was a beautiful experience with over 35,000 people present from all different backgrounds and countries with the same aim: to celebrate the sunrising alignment with the ancient archaeological monument of the giant magic stone circle in Wiltshire, UK.

Whale of a Time was present too and we've got lots of photos for you in our Stonehenge Gallery

Whale of a Time @ Synergy Centre Climate Festival

On 14th June we were asked by the Synergy Centre near Camberwell (South London) to present Whale of a Time projects and set up a stall to raise awareness of environmental issues and in particular endangered species.

Our display was decorated with all the beautifully
coloured, fired and shiny-glased clay models, posters of endangered animal species from all over the world, providing information about Whale of a Time projects and our up-coming event on 25th July Whale of a Time Featuring Eco-Artists. View invitation flyer Cuddely marine species toys as well as the Whale of a Time Artists EP were on sale as a memory of the fun and creative night.

It was a fantastic opportunity to present environmental issues and the Whale of a Time Species Model Workshop. I usually don't get the chance to talk to people so much as I'm usually quite busy with the workshop but I found that it was equally important. It was great to have the chance to talk to people about the problems various species face today and it fitted well with the Climate Change Festival. I'm please with the response and hope to have inspired lots of people with Whale of a Time.
