WhaleFootage.org is a stunningly filmed and wonderfully presented (on a Flash web site) collection of video footage of marine life. Mostly of whales – humpback whales, fin whales, sperm whales, pilot whales – but also of dolphins, seahorses, and more.
What’s more, videographer Dieter Paulman offers up his footage for use by anyone who has a use for it in the cause of protecting the environment – specifically the ocean, and the whales.
Whaling has driven many species of whales to the edge of extinction. Humpbacks, for instance, which numbered between one and two million in pre-whaling days, are currently predicted to have a worldwide population of 18,000. And I’m no scientist, but I doubt that global warming is going to help.
Watch WhaleFootage.org – you’ll be amazed.
