Whale of a Time welcomes participation of Eco-Schools

Eco-Schools Eco-Schools is an International Award Programme that guides schools on their journey to sustainability, there are currently just under 14,000 schools in England registered.

Clay-sculpting is a medium that many children have not used before. It brings out their creativity. We always allow as much freedom as possible, so the children can explore their individual and unique artistic ways of expression.

Whale of a Time at Clapham Manor Primary School

Clapham Manor Primary School London

We had a great experience working with Clapham Manor Primary School. The children impressed us with their knowledge about endangered species. They were very inspired and well educated. It was good to see the children explore and express their creativity. The clay models turned out beautiful!

Living Jungle

Endangered Ecosystems : Deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest!

Living JungleTropical rainforests are the most diverse ecosystems on earth. A four-square mile patch of rainforest contains as many as 1500 species of flowering plants, 750 species of trees, 125 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, 100 species of reptiles, 60 species of amphibians, and 150 species of butterflies. More than 50% of the world's plant and animal species inhabit the 7% of the world that is covered in rainforest. (Source: Species Endangered By a Diminishing Ecology)

Sponsor 1 hectare of rainforest with Living Jungle!

The corporation Romero is deforesting 200 hectares per day in Yurimaguas in Peru. The total size of the project is 10,000 hectares for mono-culture palmoil plantations. 1 hectare rainforest in Yurimaguas costs $400 which is £250 or Ä285. 1 acre is $160, which is £100 or Ä115. Please donate to Living Jungle to help to buy the land before it is being sold to Romero. Sponsor an acre or a hectare with Living Jungle.

Issues leading to rainforest destruction

amazon deforestationl 1. Palm oil from the rainforest
2. Soya products from the rainforest that are not certified organic or from an unsustainable source
3. Chicken, pigs and cows that have been fed on soya grown in the rainforest (e.g. Kentucky Fried Chicken)!
4. Bio-diesel from the rainforest that has been produced on rainforest land and caused itís clearance!
5. Furniture made from wood from the rainforest e.g. Mahogany
6. Beef produced in the rainforest!
7. Leather taken from cattle in the rainforest that has grassed on the rainforest land and caused itís clearance!

Do one of the following:
a) Buy organic, fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance certified products
b) Look at the source, and if it is from Amazon, central Africa or Indonesia coutries, then think twice
c) Write to the manufacturers and ask.

Be wise!

amazon deforestationl The Whale of a Time Workshop aims to help people understand the benefits of existing in harmony and taking care of Earth's delicate ecosystem that we all depend on. Be wise and remember that you are voting as a consumer and whatever you buy - you'll donate to a cause in this world. This cause could be responsible for the extinction of an animal or plant species, and it coud be destroying the habitat of other lifeforms. Corporations may call it "resources" - reducing their actions to "business" and withholding from their moral responsiblilty of their actions. Don't be part of this destructive force by supporting unssustainable business. Support sustainanbility around the panet. Make a change. Be different! Have a whale of a time!

Become a "Friend of the Whale" by joining the Whale of a Time Community and help raise awareness while having a whale of a time!
