Whale Song

Just a quick post to share this delightful documentary on whales and the scientists that study and protect them.

I, like Capt. Paul Watson, believe our action towards whales and other "intelligent" animals are highly representative of our ethnocentrism and of our (very) relative intelligence, considering the harm we (almost unconsciously) cause Mother Nature and these creatures with which we all share a common ancestor through evolution. Paul famously said he considered intelligence to be gauged by the ability to live harmoniously with your environment, and in that sense, we're proving ourselves to be quite inferior to these beings.
