Education is the key to saving the whales, the oceans, and ourselves.
Save the Whales is a beautiful example of one person being inspired and creating change! Forty years later this message carries on as Save the Whales focuses on educating and inspiring children with the hope that they too, will feel empowered to stand up and make a difference. It’s too easy as individuals, when we are facing so many issues, to feel powerless. A campaign that focuses on individual actions, especially those of children, has benefits that reach far into the future as the children are the heirs to the ocean. Thank you Save the Whales for your inspiration!
Save the Whales is a California nonprofit organization that began in 1977, by a mother and daughter team. Maris Sidenstecker II designed a t-shirt at the age of 14. The Maris team volunteered their time, on weekends in local art fairs, and sold t-shirts, and gave out information to help the whales. Forty years later, Save the Whales continues to inspire children, the future of the planet, to know that their actions can promote change.
Save The Whales has saved over 10,000 whales and marine mammals from ocean Ship Shock tests, helped prevent salt mining in a whale nursery, and inspired over 340,000 students to protect the fragile oceans.
