Humpback Whale Freed

by Leisa on July 18, 2011

I saw this video recently by Michael Fishbach, co-founder of The Great Whale Conservancy (GWC), who narrates his encounter with a young humpback whale entangled in local fishing nets, in the video below.

And this started me thinking about human nature. How is that some people will dedicate their lives to protecting and saving these beautiful creatures, and other humans make a sport out of killing them? What is it that produces such different thoughts, actions and beliefs? And how much power do we have to overcome our conditioning and choose a path of grace and gentleness on this earth?

I believe we do have enormous power to make choices in our life, and as we raise our awareness and take notice of the consequences of our actions, we start to navigate in a direction that is more in support of loving actions and less in the direction of harm. That is one of my aims as I grow, learn and evolve, and this video is such a beautifully simple demonstration of those thoughts in action.

Absolutely beautiful. I feel honoured just being able to watch such a devoted team help nature. Shows the power and majesty of whales, and the brilliance of people when they devote themselves to something more powerful than themselves.

Totally Samantha – it is such a beautiful thing to see humans working for the benefit of another creature – this is how we could all be, all of the time, if we just chose it. Wouldn’t the world be a different place?
