Whale of a Time Workshops - April Whale Review


Flying the Flags of Forest Gate Spring Festival


We had a whale of a time "Flying the Flags of Forest Gate Spring Festival".

pupils making clay models"The Flying the Flags of Forest Gate, Olympic inspired event attracted over 2000 local residents and visitors to get involved. The event programme included a talent competition, arts and crafts activities, performances, sports competitions, children's play programme, adult training classes and much more. This was enhanced by the fantastic workshop put on by Whale of a Time. The workshop attracted hundreds of adults and children, truly inspiring intergenerational interactivity, embracing and releasing creativity. Feedback from visitors said that they found the workshop therapeutic and stimulated conversation whilst learning about endangered species." - View photos of Flying the Flags of Forest Gate 2012 in the Whale of a Time Gallery

Save The Maui's Dolphin!

Maui dolphin

The world's smallest dolphin - the Maui's - needs our help. A new study has just found that there are only 55 adult dolphins left, making it one of the most critically endangered marine species in the world. It lives exclusively off the coast of New Zealand, a nation which markets itself as "100% Pure" - and yet the government is dragging its feet in protecting the dolphin. Send an email to New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key and ask him to ban gill-nets and trawlers in NZ's waters.

We are looking for Orangutan Lovers!

orangutan in sumatra We are organising an event to take action and to support the orangutans in Sumatra. As you may already be aware of the recent tragic news about the destruction of their habitat for the plantation of palm oil, they really need us now.

"The speed of destruction has gone up dramatically in the last few weeks... This is obviously a deliberate drive by these companies to clear all the remaining forests," Dr Singleton, conservation director of the Sumatran Orang-utan Conservation Programme, said in the Independent.

"If this is not stopped right now, all those orang-utans... will be gone before the end of 2012."

You may read full articles about the orangutans' situation in Sumatra below:

Make your voice heard by signing following petitions below:

orangutan in sumatra Save the Orangutans in Sumatra!
Enforce the law protecting Tripa Peat Swamp and its Critically Endangered Orangutan populations.
Over the last weeks a man made firestorm swept through a huge area of the remaining peat swamp forest of Tripa, devastating Critically Endangered Sumatran Prangutan (Pongo abelii) to the very brink of extinction, possibly within months.

Save the Vaquita!

Vaquita

The Vaquita is the world's smallest dolphin and is found in a tiny area in the Gulf of Mexico. Their current population is thought to be around 125-150 individuals. In 2 yrs the Vaquita will be extinct if we don't make a change. The Mexican and US government both list the Vaquita as endangered. Gillnets for fishing shrimp entangle and kill Vaquitas. We can save the Vaquita's by telling friends and family about the Vaquita's plight. Do not buy shrimp or fish caught in gill nets (buy farm-raised sea-food). Help the Mexican economy by traveling to Mexico. Donate to The Vaquita Recovery Fund. Send a Vaquita drawing asking the UN for it's support.
Please sign Vaquita petition

Ban Neonicotinoids!

ban neonicotinoids

We are calling on the UK government to ban the use of this group of systemic pesticides anywhere in the UK and we need everyone to continue to pressure the UK Government and their MPs to seriously reconsider the use of these pesticides: Read more here or watch video of a bee dying - in real time poisoned through toxic sweet corn contamination caused by neonicotinoids.
