Whale of a Time Workshop News

pupils making clay models The Whale of a Time Workshop is a creative and educational event, where young and old are able to model whales and other endangered species out of clay and at the same time learn about the environment, biodiversity and sustainability whilst having a whale of a time!

Participants can not only explore their knowledge about endangered species but also have the opportunity to investigate ways we can actively change our behaviours towards a sustainable society with less impact on the environment and take steps to preserve endangered species and ecosystems whilst learning in a positive and fun atmosphere. The Whale of a Time website has links to everything you need to know on endangered species and sustainable living on our planet.

Whale of a Time Workshops - March Whale Review

Hawthorns School, Redhill 2012
Hawthorns School

In March we had a Whale of a Time with pupils of all classes from Year 1 - 5 (5 - 10 years) at Hawthorns School in Redhill, Surrey. We organised the "Whale of a Time Day" for the whole school as part of their annual Science Week.

Jo Hill, Hawthorn School, Science Week Coordinator, "Thanks again for a fantastic day - I know all the kids had a great time."

pupils making clay models It was an absolute pleasure working with the pupils. We found it incredibly inspiring to see the kids' enthusiasm for nature and learning about their incredible knowledge on endangered species and ways we can help prevent species from becoming extinct. Even their parents joined in! We are very grateful and would like to thank all teachers for their great team work to make this day so special and successful.

Beam Parklands, Barking & Dagenham 2012
Hawthorns School

pupils making clay models Our first outdoor event this year was at Barking & Dagenham's wetland conservation area at Beam Parklands. Local people joined to make clay models of species of the nature conservation area of Beam Parklands. Their artwork included British species such as owls, foxes, Mallards, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Stag Beatles, Millipedes, Bees, Slow Worms, Common Frogs and many other species. Despite the cold weather we had a wonderful time connecting local children with their precious local wildlife which is at the heart of our and Beam Parkland Community Ranger Ruth Claricoates' educational programme. This event was funded by the National Lottery and organised in partnership with Barking and Dagenham Council.

Organisers and Participants' Comments included:

Ruth Clarricoates, Beam Parklands Community Ranger commented, We had a fantastic day at Beam Parklands Country Park, out in the fresh air. Everyone loved getting their hands messy and were amazed at how many different and amazing animals live in the parklands so near to where they live.

Thank you for entertaining the children.

Good idea!

Thank you for the clay it was really fun! Cherie, 13, Shelly, 12, Leia, 10, Bailey, 9, Sarah-Rose, 10, Michael, 8.

Whale of a Time Community News

Whale News! Cyberstarlet - one of our Whale of a Time Artists posted poems on Cetaceans and Nature's Rights on her profile. - Find out ways to get involved in the Whale of a Time Community

Declaration of Cetaceans Rights

No life can measure what we have achieved
By whaling and slaughtering, so much to be grieved
It’s time to support the Declaration of Rights for Cetaceans
Protect dolphins, whales and porpoises as "non-human persons"
Intelligent beings should have a legally enforceable right to life
How can anyone not support this glorious plight?

We have the same intelligence and we are self-aware
This is why we should all care
They recognise themselves in a mirror in a short blink
Lori Marino has found that dolphins also think
Whales are very clever – and they sing beautiful songs
Listen to David Rothenberg's interspecies communication
Try to sing along

But we also know cetaceans are suffering – something is wrong
They have chronic stress – shipping traffic is to blame
With military nuclear breaching – whales end up beaching
Whales and dolphins captured for Sea World tortures
Nature’s intelligence - massacred in Taiji by ignorance
If you want to know more – watch “The Cove” and see all that gore
Japanese whaling in the name of research, whales are left in the lurch
It’s irresponsible and only for business gain
Save beautiful beings like dolphins and whales
Stand up and fight for the Declaration of Cetaceans Rights

We know that when we disrespect and harm nature
We diminish ourselves and impoverish our future
“Mother Earth is a living being”
We’re part of her indivisible breathing
Intrinsically interlinked complex ecosystems
We need them for resilience and our future existence
“All life forms have the right to exist”
That’s what the Declaration insists

“A human right to life and dignity
Is meaningless without water and wilderness”
Remember, what your life means to you
And give back that love to our Earth Mother too
For cetaceans to thrive like you and me
I wrote this song for you to see
Imagine a world with peace and no crime
We could all be having a whale of a time!

Save the Rhinos! save the rhinos

The rhino is being hunted into extinction and could disappear forever unless we act now. Shocking new statistics show 440 rhinos were brutally killed last year in South Africa alone -- a massive increase on five years ago when just 13 had their horns hacked off. European nations could lead the world to a new plan to save these amazing creatures but they need to hear from us first!
