PEOPLE PROTECT WHAT THEY LOVE
About 15 million people are doing a whale watching trip each year, numbers steadily increasing. Seeing these gentle giants in the wild seems to be a life goal for quite a lot of people. And if whale watching is done right, it can be a memorable and truly eye opening experience. Sometimes people have to see something with their own eyes. To think about it. To understand it. To care about it. To love it. And then, to protect it. Because people protect what they love. That’s how whale watching can have a positive impact.
Obviously, the best thing to do is whale watching from land. There are a lot of places in the world, where you can do just that with great comfort and really good chances of seeing whales. If you have to hop on a boat, make sure to choose a sustainable and responsible operator. Which means: It’s not about the money, it’s about the whales. A sensible and balanced whale watching trip will be safe, educational, enjoyable and always with great respect for the whales. Make your experience as rich as and the impact on the whales as small as possible. Which also means: Please never swim with whales, even if some of the pictures on Instagram look wonderful.
