Whale of a Time is an organisation that organises creative workshops on environmental issues called the Whale of a Time Workshop. Our aim is to raise awareness of sustainable ways of living without harming or destroying the equilibrium of the Earth's ecosystems.

Richard Yeoward, former Vice Chair WWF, said about Whale of a Time, "Conservation works best when the people are involved."

Mike (10) said, I think that this workshop was amazing. I love moulding clay! Thank you!

"The Whalesong Project is a grassroots organization based in Maui. We are capturing the live sounds of whales in the Kihei harbor and streaming them over the Internet. Our mission is to inspire stewardship of the oceans and the environment. We believe that the voices of the natural world, and of Hawaiian and other native cultures that have a connection with that world, carry inspiration and mana'o (wisdom) that can help carry humanity into the future. We carry out our kuleana (this responsibility and privilege) through our website, through the development of acoustic and other monitoring technologies, development of curriculum materials for schools, cultural events, public outreach and education, and other charitable efforts."

"London's Buzzing Promoting tailormade and adapted permapiculture principles to suit urban conditions and facilitate the pursuit of this userfriendly, minimalist and yet productive approach to natural beekeeping within a framework that ensures respect and establishes a mutually, beneficial non-exploitative and non-interfering relationship between beekeepers and bees, respecting bees' natural survival instincts and behaviour within their hives.

The Oceans are the largest ecosystems of this planet and the natural balance of the chain of life in the oceans is about to change drastically. Fish stocks will be exhausted by 2050. Few fleets catch using sustainable practices.

Cetaceans - Whales, dolphins, and porpoises all belong to the same taxonomic order called cetaceans. Read more about Whales, dolphins, porpoises and whale communication.

In the year 2050 the CO2 level in the atmosphere as well as surface waters of the ocean will be double compared to the pre-industrial era.

The Rainforest is the second-largest natural ecosystem on the planet and the destruction of the forest is happening at an incomprehensible rate. Corporations are stealing in the name of business, ancient trees are logged illegally and with them goes the whole ecosystem. Thousands of species are destroyed due to unsustainable consumption.

Soya and palm oil are the largest rainforest killers. A recent report in scientific journal Nature (23rd March 2006) warned that 40% of the Amazon will be lost by 2050 if current trends in agricultural expansion continue, threatening biodiversity and seriously contributing to climate change. The soy is shipped to Europe, where it is fed to animals that are then turned into fast food products like chicken nuggets. Current economic trends are assisting and contributing to this crime.

"Substituting fossil fuels with biofuels will not only add more carbon to the atmosphere, but will destroy primary forests, biodiversity and livelihoods, writes Tristan Farrow. The study, published in this week's issue of Science, argues that we would be better off, replanting forests, improving the efficiency of fossil fuel engines, and moving to carbon free alternatives over the next 30 years." (The Guardian)

Estimates put the wild Chinese tiger population at between 10 - 30, while approximately 60 survive in Chinese zoos.

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is a member of the Felidae family; the largest of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera.

All living beings depend on pollination. Without bees no pollination, without pollination no fruits and vegetables. Einstein said, that "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left."

We reap what we sow. We need to think of ways in which we can change our attitude and behaviour for everyone's benefit. Zero deforestation is an urgent priority if we want to save for the future the last remains of the Amazon. Developing global sustainable economic business practices, driven by environmental friendly policy change, powered by a highly aware global consumer is what we need now.

Whale of a Time is a great way to make a difference and support the growing sustainable wave of change that needs to happen on this planet now.
