Power of the People

Happy life

One of the messages I came away with having listened to several scientists and experts on tsunami generated trash, marine rubbish, plastics, e.t.c., at this weeks Pacific Whale Foundation Weekend with the experts,  is that each person on earth has the power to evoke change and help.  Little things, like using a plastic free water bottle as a personal canteen and taking it with you everywhere.   The amount of trash you eliminate over the years will is staggering.  Not to mention the increase in social awareness this brings.  When people see other people adopting earth friendly practices they start to adopt them too.

Make a personal choice to purchase products that are reusable, recyclable, or bio-degradable.  Eliminate as much of a footprint as you can.  Maximize our planets resources by minimizing your personal waste.  If we can change individual behavior, little by little the worlds perspective on the environment will change too.  As the world population grows its our responsibility to manage our resources so that future generations of people can not only exist, but live in a world of abundance.

I am extremely grateful for having the opportunity to share my photographs and stories during this event, and hope people became inspired to learn more about how to co-exist with the environment for the sake of the whales as well as ourselves.

    Thank you for spreading the word

  3. I really, really, really enjoyed reading your post. What you said is so true. I am trying to spread the same awareness through my blog. I enjoyed viewing all your pictures. Most people will never get to witness what you photograph, but most people have an effect on the livelihood of what you photograph.
