Dear Friend of the Whale,
Blue-whale

Do you know who I am? I'm the world’s largest, most ancient, intelligent and most peaceful mammal and I don't have any natural predators except humans. I live twice a human lifetime, and I dominate the oceans peacefully whilst maintaining my environment in a sustainable way. I don’t kill other intelligent life forms. My food consumption and energy use is highly efficient. I've been around for about 14 million years and I can measure up to 30m in length and weigh up to 200 tonnes. I'm the icon for success in evolution. Who am I?

Whale of a Mission

We provide a tool for individuals to take action and to inspire people to live in harmony with animals and our environment. We are on a
Whale of a Mission.

Whale of a Time is devoted to supporting successful stewardship of our planet, to create a peaceful, morally just, humane and sustainable culture, while respecting the values of all animals and ensuring survival of all species. The project draws from the example of peaceful stewardship of the oceans by the great Whales.

Blue Whale Experience

Humpback Whale Whale of a Time is planning to build a life-size blue whale sculpture to create an experience about the life in the Oceans. The whale is part of the great human turn around to save the planet. The whale will be filled with audio-visual messages to portray the beauty of these majestic creatures and the Oceans. These could be in form of music, animation, film or art. We welcome contributions to the project.
