EXTRACT FROM ‘PLANET DANCING’

 

ECHOES IN THE SEA:

Today we no longer kill whales with harpoons – we kill them with ‘research’.In an age depleted of Blue Whales, what judgement of us moves in the brains of these magnificent animals? Brains that know the passes through the mountains of the great oceans; that have confronted giant squids; that have seen the wrecks of whaling ships – are they aware that something has changed?Are they aware that fewer great whales inhabit the seas?Are they aware how few? 

Will it matter if there is silence in the ocean of whales?
