We have recently been running the Whale of a Time Workshop at the London Green Fair - London's biggest green event, and at the Dagenham community launch event at Beam Parklands, which is an award-winning wetland that has recenlty won a top national award - The CIWEM Living Wetlands Award. Stay tuned for upcoming workshops at Beam Parklands. We have also participated in Eco City Living at Barnard Park organised by Islington Council to engage the community in nature through hands-on activities and lot of fun. We had an epic workshop at the Green Gathering at beautiful Chepstow in Wales and the most beautiful workshop right next to the sea making endangered marine species at Coastal Capers as part of the "Living Seas" Programme organised by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. Please view photos and videos in the Whale of a Time Gallery. You may also read our full reviews including comments of organisers and participants in our June and July reviews.

In this Whale of a Time Review you will find information about Whale of a Time Workshops in August at Gaunt's House Summer Gathering which was organised by Richard Glyn Charitable Foundation Ltd.

You will also have the opportunity do your bit and sign petitions to stop the Belo Monte Monster Dam in Brazil in the Amazon, stop the illegal trade in wild macaques, supported by award-winning film director Patrick Rouxel, who has recently joined the Whale of a Time Community, and other petitions to stop the trade in wild dolphins and save the Amazon Rainforest.

It was great to see you at our Whale of a Time Workshops at Gaunt's House Summer Gathering.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Gaunt's House Summer Gathering. The gathering was truely unique and it is one of its kind and there is nothing like it anywhere else in the UK. A huge variety of amazing workshops, talks and therapies - something for everyone! The community of visitors and guests felt like a huge family reunion in a beautiful relaxing environment with lots to learn and get involved with. During the Whale of a Time Workshops we found that the kids have an amazing wealth of knowledge, which we could share and nourish whilst modelling endangered species in clay. Lot's of positive and pro-active energy in a very inspiring environment.

Topeng Monyet, or dancing monkeys - illegal trade in wild macaques

macaques Patrick Rouxel is a Whale of a Time Artist. You can watch Patrick's latest film to raise awareness of illegal trade in wild macaques by clicking on the image (right). Find out more about Patrick Rouxel and his second latest and award-winning film Green in the Whale of a Time Community.

Topeng Monyet, or dancing monkeys, is a particularly cruel practice where juvenile macaques are forced to perform (dance, ride bicycles, wear masks) in the crowded and busy streets of Jakarta. An illegal trade in wild macaques that are captured from the wild has built up around the phenomena known as Topeng Monyet.
