Migaloo2 Whale Ocean Conservation Yacht

Migaloo2 Whale Ocean

Conservation Yacht

The aim of yacht Migaloo 2 is to use it as a platform to raise awarness on important issues facing whales, dolphins and ocean health. The idea is to travel along the east coast of Australia during the humpback whale migration visiting ports along the way showing films and giving talks about these critical issues.

I also plan to do lots of live internet streaming from Migaloo 2 so the whole world including the Japanese can see what amazing beings the whales and dolphins are.

Migaloo Spotted off Port Macquarie today. He will probably pass Byron between midday monday and midday tuesday depending on how fast he is swimming. Head up to the light house and you may see him swim by. Im glad migaloo 2 is ready and I plan to sail out on monday to say hi. Bunna Lawrie told me the legend of Jiddera (migaloo) the white whale many years ago. Similar to the white buffalo he signifies a time of great changes on the earth. I hope all the whale watch boat on the gold coast and every where keep the required distance away and don't hassle him. www.migaloo2.com/homeThanks to ORRCA member Leigh Mansfield for these first quick photos of Migaloo this morning. A perfect day for whale watching a humpback superstar.
More photos from Jodie Lowe to come later.

Christina Burki FYI. 💖

Just returned from my court case where DPI wanted to fine me $880 for leaving an object on land without permission. Well basically I won. I didn't have to pay any fines or the DPI s barrister fees. The area where i have tied up migaloo 2 for the last 16 months is not in a licenced area of the harbour hence anyone could moore there for free. DPI didn't like that and the yacht club wanted to expand their operation. Its a shame the Brunswick Heads yacht club, BHYC, refused me membership, guess they think I'm to much of a pirate and trouble maker and some old committee members didn't want me as a member to challenge their non democratic processes. After 12 months negotiating I agreed I would now move into a Coop mooring. I spoke to DPI reps about getting representation, (re the future development of the harbour region,) for the group of yachts who have been unable to work with or join the BHYC. Im happy to be here keeping an eye on this beautiful part of the world and look forward to getting migaloo 2 sea worthy and joining the humpback whale migration in August this year. Ill be doing a fundraiser soon at the Elixa Bar in Byron to help pay for maintenance so hope to see a few people there and hear about how we can help our marine brethren. ... See MoreSee Less

Ric is live streaming now from taiji Japan where they are selecting dolphins for a life of slavery to entertain humans. There are about 200 dolphins now in the pen after some are selected most of the remaining Dolphins will become pet food. Today I wore my boycott Japanese product t shirt to offer people some direct action idea that anyone can do. If you do take this action please write to the CEO and pm of Japan why. Time to stop bringing shame to your country Japan and join the human race.

Why is this still happening?

its taking humans a while to understand that dolphins are are friend not our food or slaves. This too will pass.

Be a voice for the voiceless.

There is a lot of misinformation that has been circulating for far too long. If you can attend one of the rallies posted below it will help to bring the whole story into perspective, and give people their power back to make decisions based on real facts and real solutions.

This is what we can do with great white sharks give them a tickle under the chin not tangle them up in rope sharknets drown them or kill them with drum lines. Stop putting fear into the water instead communicate telepathically that you are not food and you respect them as the ancients of the ocean. Then have fun enjoying the ocean and stop living in fear and putting up walls. Sharks are our friends when we give them a chance. Tell Blair no sharknets for Ballina.

At his current speed i have calculated Migaloo is due to pass Byron at 2 am Tuesday 26th July and Tweed Heads 10-30 am. get to a headland. Many Gold Coast WW tours have been too close in the passed hassling Migaloo. Hope they stay the require 500 meters.MIGALOO! Australia's most famous humpback paid a visit to Port Stephens today! Guests on board our 10.30am and 11am Whale Watches were treated to a great glimpse of this very special whale.

It has been 2 years since Migaloo last made his presence felt in Port Stephens. Although a much more subdued visit then his last, crew were excited to see this incredible creature on his northern migration.

There are strict watching guidelines in place for Migaloo. Boats should not approach within 500m of this animal. All photos are taken with a large telephoto lens and heavily cropped.

Got a call last week that there was a stranded baby humpback on Seven mile beach. Zapped down there and some local lads had already helped it back out. Heard later that someone wanted it kept on the beach so Sea World Vet could come and see what the problem was. Sorry Sea world you have lost my and many peoples confidence especially after killing the Cabaret calf and others that stranded. Best idea if you see a stranding just ring some mates and help it out your self. Keep sea world out of it unless there is no other way. The pic and rave below is from ORRCA. They do a good job. just reckon we need a few free radicals to make sure the whales needs are always first and a whale isn't killed just for science. Shows to me rescue first, ask questions later ...... "A very young neonate Humpback whale stranded today at seven mile beach near Lennox head. Lots of wonderful people worked very hard to re-float and release the calf as there was a pod of Humpback whales just offshore. ORRCA volunteers and National parks staff stayed on site until sunset searching several beaches and watching from nearby headlands. The whole team is cautiously optimistic that the young calf is successfully reunited with its mum. Hopefully a case of misadventure not abandonment. Please call the ORRCA hotline 94153333 if you see any stranded whale or dolphin.
So many of our volunteers attended today and several were on standby for back up if the calf re-stranded... An absolutely wonderful team. Thank you!".

Thank you for saving Baby Humpback! So inspiringly wonderful

Thank you for NOT waiting. Never wait for help please.

Im glad they were there.

Thank you! hopefully the neonate humpback found its mum or was adopted by a passing pod.

we did get drone footage of a baby whale that looked the same as this one swimming happily with 2 adults only 2 km away.and no reports of further beaching, a good result.

Following is the interview Eilish De Avalon did with me on Toads, Whales and my new documentaries God Molecule and the Shamanic Toad and "The Whale Whisperers"
Eilish De Avalon from We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For speaks with Dean Jefferys, documentary filmmaker of Shamans of the Amazon, who is now working on a new film called The God Molecule and the Shamanic Toad. youtu.be/R7GvGfWZfyY
Dean’s most famous documentary, Shamans of the Amazon was broadcast on SBS TV Australia and has become a cult film about Amazonian medicine shamans and the rainforest sacramental herbal tea called Ayahuasca. Dean is now crowdfunding for his new film The God Molecule and the Shamanic Toad, Eilish will be speaking with Dean in depth about his work and his passions.
Dean first got into film making as an effective tool to bring about social change filming protests rather documenting environmental activism protests from as early as 1984, during the Roxby Downs Uranium protests. “I flew over the main mine shaft in an ultra light aircraft and dropped a wreath of flowers onto the Uranium mine. The footage was picked up by the Channel 10 news network. It was then that I realised the power of the media and the importance of creating your own media.”
Dean has two passion projects that he’s running at the moment, these two passions been a major part of his life; communicating with whales and Shamanic practices in the Amazon. His classic film , has become a cult film on shamans and Ayahuasca. It was one of the first films to be made about Ayahuasca to Western audiences and we’ll speak about it to the film maker in depth.
Dean works from the Marine Conservation Yacht, Migaloo 2, which is moored near Byron Bay, he moved to Northern Rivers of New South Wales in 1992 after coming back from filming in the Amazon for the film Amazon – The Invisible People. The documentary was taken up by SBS TV.
To Dean, success is about living his passion, recording and sharing wisdom gained from the journey. My passions are for social justice and consciousness change. If you’d like to watch his previous work, here’s the link to his previous film Shamans of the Amazon. For more info on Dean’s adventures, go to this link
“When I experienced the venom from the Sonara Desert toad in Mexico, I could see the great potential this medicine had for helping to create a quantum shift in global consciousness. So I wanted to explore the traditional use, not only of toad medicine but other uses of the particular molecule, which is called 5-MeO-DMT. My plan is to do some crowd funding. I’ve become disillusioned with traditional funding and distribution models so am exploring crowdfunding and pay per view as a distribution model, by-passing traditional funding and distribution and going direct to an interested audience.”
The God Molecule Crowdfunding campaign. www.indiegogo.com/…/the-god-molecule-an…/x/13295701…
Another film Dean is working on is called the Whale Whisperers. “The reason why both these films interest me is because I believe we need to develop ways of, as humans listening to the natural world, listening and doing what is necessary for the planet to bring about appropriate change. Plants and animals have secrets hidden away which are available to us if we care to look. Whales, toads, vines of the amazon all have magic if we are willing to investigate. The secrets are understanding our self and connection to the Great Spirit and understanding our relationship with all life.”
As his passions and filmmaking are intrinsically linked, as much as he likes hanging out with whales Dean wants to share how deeply we can connect so others can have these amazing experiences.
“It’s the same with the medicine plants, they are my passion and I want to share how they can bring about a consciousness shift. The two are one and that’s my life.”
Tune into our show on CCN, We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For to chat about the magic of whale dreaming, marine conservation, South American shamanism, vine and toad dreaming and opening one’s consciousness to the God Molecule from right on board the Migaloo 2.In our confusing and often frightening times, the need for truly empowering FREE & INDEPENDENT MEDIA has never been more necessary.

Woow first day of Anna Breytenbach Animal Communication workshop in Byron was amazing. Some great insights how to prepare your self for the age old practice of Telepathic Communication with animals, plants and other energy fields. Looking forward to going out in the ocean to see and communicate with the whales, sharks and other marine creatures off Byron on Monday. Does anyone have an important question they would like to ask any marine creatures. I certainly do. If you haven't seen her Communicating Telepathically with Spirit the Jaguar in Africa check out this link youtu.be/gvwHHMEDdT0
And great insight into Great white sharks in her
ANIMAL SPIRIT NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2015
to subscribe to Anna Breytenbach's newsletter and more info on Animal Communication see www.animalspirit.org
This year has seen a noticeable increase in shark numbers and activity in the warm Indian Ocean waters off the Western Cape of South Africa. Within a couple of months there were three incidents involving injury or battle between man and fish in the sea – the most famous of them being Mick Fanning during an international surf contest. Two local surfers have also been bitten, one of whom lost part of a leg. Notably, these surfers are not antagonistic towards sharks as a result. To the contrary, they have a deeper sense of the rightful place of sharks in the ecosystem and a sense of compassion for even those animals who caused them physical injury. I’ve met with one of the young men and am inspired by his depth of care for and connection to the natural world. However, people are understandably eager to find out why some sharks are much more frequently not only occurring inshore, but also engaging with humans. That’s how I came to be communicating with the collective of Great White sharks in the area, and what they had to convey is in the article below.
Why Catching a Wave is not a Good Idea
Great white sharks do not want to eat us, nor do they mistake us for seals or other of their usual meals. They are very aware of humans being different to other species, as we humans give off a certain range of characteristic frequency emissions by virtue of our intrinsic biological make-up and the electromagnetic frequencies we emit (from our hearts and brains, for example.)
So-called attacks aren’t “attacks” in their view – meaning that the motivation is not “attack”, neither from an aggressive nor a defensive position. Instead, what drives shark behaviour is curiosity. They approach people in the water for this reason. Some factors make them more likely to approach – but they do so pretty obviously, not hiding their “reconnaissance” or eventual circling if it even comes to that. The problem usually begins when the human notices the shark for the first time and then reacts in a huge way.
Let’s examine the trajectory of a close encounter of the shark kind. Sharks test objects by mouthing them; they are very tactile animals and do this countless times per day with all manner of objects, animate and inanimate. The underside of surfboards, kayaks, wave-skis, etc. with limbs protruding from them activate in the shark brain a “search image match”. Both the shape outline and movement (skegs, fins and paddles slicing through water) resemble their natural prey – even though the sharks’ other senses are telling them otherwise. As their eyesight isn’t very good though, the rough resemblance is enough to warrant closer investigation on their part. So they approach. So far so good.
It’s what happens next that can result in human injuries sometimes. Statistically infinitesimally few times, by the way. Almost all the time, the “big fish” story ends there – with an amazing sighting up close and perhaps a passing glance from the shark who continues on his or her more important business.
When following pure curiosity and encountering a fear response from the human, a shark’s predatory instincts are highly activated, making it more likely that they follow through with a tactile investigation. This fear response from the human makes us behave like prey. Our behaviour needn’t even be thrashing or splashing; just the surge of emotion and thoughts associated with fear have intense wave qualities that are universally understood across species. As we emit panic or fright or other forms of feebleness, we’re as good as broadcasting our status as “prey”. Suddenly we’re of more interest to the shark. If a “test bite” then happens, the shark quickly realises we aren’t food, and doesn’t come back for more. Notice how so-called “attacks’ don’t involve the sharks wilfully finishing off the surfer/swimmer/diver. Typically it’s a case of one bite and then they’re gone. The fact that one bite may be fatal to the human body is nothing to do with them, and certainly doesn’t imply that they intended to kill. It’s only us humans who add that meaning to the scenario and project qualities of aggression and meanness onto sharks. A reputation they don’t deserve.
There are a few factors that are leading to an increase in encounters with sharks close to shore. Changing sea temperatures are causing huge spikes and falls in populations and disrupting their movement patterns. There’s an unusually high number and density of mature male sharks in South African waters at present. The tourism activity of shark cage-diving (which involves luring white sharks close with bait) is making sharks become more familiar with humans in general and therefore lose their natural avoidance of us. They still don’t exhibit any aggression towards us for this practice – but we’ve “trained” them to become comfortable with being up close to people in the water.
Environmentally destructive fishing practices are literally wiping out marine food sources, particularly medium to large sized fish. This scarcity of nourishment is altering behaviour within groups of sharks. Again, not because humans are regarded as alternate food! However, competition between sharks in the same area is magnified. The constant daily activity of food predation has taken on a competitive angle. This is where the interspecies dynamic becomes interesting…
Local Great White sharks are apex predators who are competing with each other in the hunt for food. Kayakers, wave-skiers, surfers, body-boarders, spear fishermen and other such sportspeople are also in the water… also hunting! And to some degree also competing with each other. Amidst the fun of riding the waves, there’s often an element of vying for the best spot, performing better than the other people in the water or achieving some kind of peak experience. Whether hunting the perfect wave or ride, we’re essentially emitting predatory signals into the surroundings. Other predators notice this energetic reality on a quantum level – and come closer to check out this other predator… in this case, a human. Especially as our athletic antics in the water are messing up their hunting. Essentially, if we’re trying to “catch a wave", we’re in “hunter” mode. Which puts us in direct competition with any other hunters nearby.
So what can we humans do? Aside from respectfully leaving the water for a while if the sharks want the space? When in the water, we need to adjust our state of being. A human exuding quiet confidence and peacefulness will not engage a shark’s predatory investigation. Remaining calm when seeing a shark can be difficult because of our unfortunate cultural and media-induced programming, however. Preparing ourselves energetically before entering the water will help. Focus on calming yourself and staying present with your natural breathing rhythm. Create some helpful visualisations that work for you. It’s important to stay out of unhelpful feelings – as nervousness and anxiety attract sharks. To stay out of Fear and Resistance for example, focus on the opposite states of being: Love and Acceptance. Even just by silently saying these words to yourself will invoke your body’s electrical signals to be in accordance with those more peaceful moods. Another very effective practical tool is to visualise a cocoon of calmness around you like an energetic shield. Simply imagine that there’s always this space between you and anything you don’t want close; picture it being like a space-suit you’re wearing that extends a few metres beyond your body, all around and above and below. Adjusting your relationship to the experience you’re seeking in the water is also important. Instead of hunting or catching the wave, be in the flow – literally and figuratively.
The bottom line is that sharks mean humans no harm whatsoever. They deserve humans reciprocating with respect and allowing them to be themselves in what is after all their natural home.

Just had another beautiful week out in Hervey Bay sailing on migaloo 2 with the whales. Enjoyed some magic time on kgari Fraser Island northern tip in the sand dunes and the boys even went for a surf. No shark paranoia for them. Roonies was full of whale magic as usual and we all felt very blessed to be in the whales and dolphins presence. This week is the week Japan wants to start killing dolphins in Taaji. We prayed and visualized that this sadistic practice will end and all cetaceans will swim free in the worlds oceans. More info see www.migaloo2.com ... See MoreSee Less

iPhone ruff edit of the migaloo 2 journey so far Started aug 2015 OMG we have been seriously blessed and bathed in whale energy. It's been two ways too which has been extra nice. This whale swam with us for almost an hour going belly up underneath us three times while Rainbow Eagle gave it some ancient vibes with his didge. Feeling their desire to connect with us as more than observers. We have had several eye to eye encounters that I have no words for. Still digesting the exchange. Have done ceremony where we have felt there desire and invitation to connect deeper with them. Glad to have another few weeks up here to drop into a deeper telepathic level with them. To see my next documentary I'm making called. Whale Whisperers. And support my crowd funding campaign I have 2 days left to reach my $4000 target that will get me some much needed equipment so I can share this magic with you and more.

Let the Danish gov know what you feel about them supporting the Faroese whale slaughterHere are the e-mail addresses for all 179 members of the Danish Parliament. I have sent off numerous messages to all of them with only two replies, both from Members of the Danish People's Party supporting the slaughter of whales.

Not one of the members of Parliament has opposed the slaughter.

That fact alone coupled with the backing of the Danish Royal Navy demonstrates that Denmark is fully behind this horrific slaughter of Pilot whales and dolphins in the Faroe Islands.

This support by Denmark gives great encouragement to the whalers.

The killing of whales and dolphins is illegal under the laws of the European Union and this means it is illegal under the laws of Denmark.

This week we have had citizens arrested from the EU nations of Italy, Germany, France, and Luxembourg. They were arrested for opposing something that is crime in the EU.

The Faroe claim exemption from EU regulations yet they benefit from tens of millions of Euros in subsidies from the EU. In other words they receive the benefits of the EU without having to abide by the regulations and laws of the EU.

Please send messages and pictures of the slaughter to these people. Simply copy these names and paste onto an e-mail and send a message and/or attach a picture.

And then we get that fake ass Danish Prince Fredrick who married an Australian girl from Tasmania big noting himself everytime they come down under. Hobart in Tasmania is the main head quarters for Sea Shepherd....

Soon the children of the Faroese will tell stories if their crazy ancestors who lost their heart and the people who came in boat to help them find it. Thankyou Sea ShepherdsUpdate From the Faroes 1705 Hours (Faroes Time)

The Grind on the island of Vagur at Borg Beach is underway. On this same beach on June 10th they viciously slaughtered 110 whales and now they want to take between 100 and 200 more. It does not look like the whales can escape. The BRIGITTE BARDOT has been stopped by the Danish Navy.Two Sea Shepherd crew from the BARDOT have been arrested by the Danish Navy. All the courage and determination in the world cannot overcome the power of a Naval Frigate and an armed patrol ship. The police are on the beaches protecting the armed mob of whale killers from any acts of kindness that might occur.

What is about to happen in a few minutes is a disgrace to humanity, to the Faroe Islands and to the nation of Denmark and every Danish citizen. It is a disgrace to Europe and is a blatant violation of European Union law.

Within minutes the screams of the whales will pierce the air, the shouts of sadistic joy from the killers will attempt to drown them out. The knives will stab, the lances will penetrate innocent flesh and the entire families of whales will be extinguished in pools of hot blood as calves die alongside their mothers and mothers watch in horror as their children are mutilated in a human orgy of slaughter.
Is this what you are all about Denmark. Is this the image you wish to present to the world. The red on your flag represents the blood of innocent, self aware, intelligent sentient beings. And they are dying for what? The Faroese do not need to eat their flesh. They are dying in the name of archaic traditions that no longer have any place in the 21st Century, they are dying so that the men of the Faroe Islands can validate their existence in a circus of cruelty and sadistic pleasure.

WTF!! Just horrific

Mick Fanning punches shark during attack at surfing final at Jefferys Bay. Everyone ok. no blood. wooow crazy stuff. Happy to see no surfers or organisers are calling for a shark cull or nets. They acknowledged we are in their world and we do so at our risk. Had Mick been like some of the surfers in WA who were promoting culls and drum lines i dont know if his karma would have been so good. There are some precautions we can take when entering their world like not surfing in river mouths, sunset, sunrise, cloudy days, near lobster pots, baits etc also some concerned surfers are strapping on electric pulse anklets. There are spotting options, tagging special sharks and rigid plastic shark nets that dont entangle marine life. This shark that was probably 3-4 meters could have bitten and killed Mick if it wanted to as he was in the water swimming without his board for about 15 seconds. My feeling is that he was giving Mick a close check out possible he was intending to knock him of his board to see what it was and got caught in his leg rope. Maybe he was going to bite who knows. Mick did the right thing in facing it and punching it in the nose. Mick said he was not going to go easy. deeeeeep breath everyone. see www.migaloo2.com to see addresss who you can write to to get rid of shark nets in Queensland

From Nicole McLachlan and Sea Shepherd footage about shark nets and drum lines. There is a better way............. After seeing and filming this juvenile dolphin hooked by her stomach with her mum keeping her at the surface for air, on a drumline right off the Gold Coast- in front of hotels and tourist attractions- there is no doubt in my mind that the shark control program is nothing but a destructive and disgusting example of a policy, with no solid scientific backing- in fact more than 350 scientists have spoken out against the use of these devices. They are simply used as a means to blindly fool the public into a false sense of security- they create more of a hazard than they do to keep people safe. It's time people see the real destruction they cause. There were 12 more dolphins caught and mostly killed just last year (2014) in Queensland alone! Not to mention hundreds of sharks, 19 sea turtles, 8 whales, 7 manta rays and many other species... Since 1962, 50,000 sharks have been killed and 30,000 'by-catch'/non targeted species were caught- many dying horrific deaths. There are better alternatives out there that don't trap or kill marine life- let's use them! The only way we are going to get alternatives happening is to get public support behind this. Please do not think this is a waste of time. These are the people that we need to change current legislation. Bill Byrne Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries and Minister for Sport and Racing: email: agriculture@ministerial.qld.gov.au Steven Miles Queensland Minister of Environment, email: environment@ministerial.qld.gov.au Annastacia Palaszczuk Queensland Premier, email: thepremier@premiers.qld.gov.au Jackie Trad Deputy Premier email: deputy.premier@minsterial.qld.gov.au Deborah (Deb) Frecklington Shadow Minister for Fisheries email: Nanango@parliament.qld.gov.au You can look up your local MP here: www.parliament.qld.gov.au/members/current/list For video footage: www.abc.net.au/…/2…/dolphin-caught-shark-bait/6622604

Another whale killed by SeaWorld. If anyone sees a whale beached dont ring SeaWorld or marine Parks. Ring and get a bunch of friend together and try to guide it out yourself. SeaWorld has played God too many times with beached whales and killed them when there was still hope. And guess who gets to keep the body and skeleton and do tests that further their careers. You guest it SeaWorld. Ive been at a beaching where SW has not even brought rescue gear just a little black box. And at another I heard one SW employee tell another not to put a jumper on in the freezing weather and cover up the SW emblem. Its all about branding. It is a commercial operation focusing on cetacean slavery for human entertainment after all. Come to my marine conservation event at Kulcha Jam byron next friday 17th 6 pm and you can see for your self from a video i made. I experience a stranding that became obvious afterwards that the baby was pushed to shore by its mother to get it away from a big tiger shark that was following. Little did the mother know that humans from SeaWorld would intervene and carry it up onto the dry sand and kill it. And SeaWorld are still doing the same while the mother waited for high tide behind the waves. Sea World were not "forced" to make a decision to kill the baby whale it was simply the easiest decision to make. Especially as it was coming onto the weekend and they would have to pay their SW emblem wearing employees extra time. Excuse me if i sound skeptical its because i am. And their reason to kill it.. poor condition and needing mothers milk by the "expert" SW vet. Probably the same vet that attended the Cabarita calf murder with no rescue gear just a big needle of poison.

That's so horrible.

Media Release.. 22- 7- 14...Migaloo 2 skipper calls for the removal of shark nets and drum lines....Only days after marine conservation yacht Migaloo 2 sailed from Byron Bay to the Gold Coast last week holding up banners off Snapper Rocks shark nets saying that shark nets and drum line need to be removed a baby whale was tangled up and drowned in a net and a dolphin killed by a drum line.

Skipper of Migaloo 2, Dean Jefferys said, “This is the second baby
humpback whale to be drowned and killed in these outdated shark nets in the last ten months and proves that the dangers to marine life of these nets and drum lines are not worth it. .
Shark nets are purely cosmetic to convince tourists they are “safe”. The nets do not
protect anyone at all – sharks can swim over, under, and around the
nets. Baited drum lines actually attract sharks and kill non targeted species like
this recent baby dolphin just off shore from SeaWorld
and the shark nets are also non effective. Most sharks and other marine life die inside the nets trying to get back to sea from the shore and the by catch is enormous. From 1960 and 1990 shark nets entangled 216 dolphins, 2140 turtles, 552 dugongs including many migrating humpback. They should be removed immediately to prevent more needless marine deaths. 29 whales have been caught in shark nets since 2000; of those only 26 have been successfully freed. Some
are not found and die slowly from suffocation or wounds from the nets.
Last migration season six whales were tangled and another baby
humpback died in a shark net of Sydney. The shark drum line policy
needs to end and these soft rope shark nets need to go. If fear and
propaganda still has a place in promoting overseas tourism then at the
very least they should be replaced with the harder plastic nets that
dont tangle up and kill marine life. Sharks play an important role in
maintaining a healthy marine ecosystem and shouldn't be seen as the
devil that film directors made them out to be 30 years ago. If the dolphin does servive the wound of the drum line we trust SeaWorld who currently are nursing the dolphin will free it when it is better and not force it into a live of slavery doing silly tricks for humans and food."

Following video is my 40 min Bentley Blockade Film I just finished editing for the Migaloo 2 launch last week. Its so inspiring. Great music energy interviews dancing ceremony and celebrations. For people who where there or not this is a historic document. www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH7YCA1hF5Y&list=UUImlX1nCSnKGw6Uj1_U8riQ&feature=share Not to be confused with the main Bentley doco that Brendan Shoebridge and David Lowe are making which im sure will be amazing. This is a quick 2 day edit just to get some magic out there to inspire people of this historic event.
Also Im in my last 9 days of my crowd funding campaign for my next doco "The Whale Whisperers" site. Although I did quite a bit of Live Streaming at Bentley from my phone I really need to get some professional equipment to send material live to networks and the www. About half of the funding ($7000) is for some good live streaming gear which will also be essential to Live Stream any CSG blockades in the future. pozi.be/thewhalewhisperers.
Sailing north in Migaloo 2 around 7am on Thursday morning from Brunswick to join the humpback whale migration. Keep informed of the trip, action and live streaming with the whales and get on my mailing list at www.migaloo2.com and or like www.facebook.com/Migaloo2Bentley Blockade.
