Just a quick blog to let you all know what I’ve been up to…
Well the countdown is on until the International Whaling Commission in early July- I’m now focused on preparing for that! I’ve recently said goodbye to my little island I call home on the Great Barrier Reef (but will be back there quite often over the next few months!)… During my last few days on the island I was able to do some of the most amazing diving I have ever done- with some of the most amazing creatures inhabiting our oceans. One of which is the Manta Ray- an incredible animal, not only for its’ sheer size, but its’ grace and beauty… Over four dives in three days, I was able to encounter these creatures on every dive- as they circled right above us, getting a closer look at what would seem like aliens in their underwater world…
On the 25th of June, I will be a part of Hervey Bay’s (Australia) annual National Whale Day celebrations- giving a talk along with Bob Irwin about the conservation of these amazing animals, and also participating in their infamous ‘Paddle Out for Whales’ celebration in the bay… If you will be anywhere near Hervey Bay, Australia’s whale watching capital, on the 25th please come along to what will be a great day!
I will post more updates, photos and videos as I prepare for the IWC, as well as getting involved in more projects!
Thanks everyone for the support!
On the path to protect,
