The inspiration for this pie came from the image of this beautiful Humpback whale printed on the plate. HUMPBACK whales and many other species are disappearing from our oceans. One of the main responsibility for the dwindling population of these magnificent mammals is commercial whale hunting. The Japanese and Norwegian whaling ships hunting them into extinction. On the guise of “Scientific research.” How long are we, as responsible human beings going to allow this brutal ruthless act of killing of our graceful friends to be slaughtered?
One of the key functions of these beautiful creatures of the oceans is. They dive very deep in searches of food like krill and other foods they eat, then they come back up to the surface to breath. During their time on the surface, they have to poop, what they have eaten and they poop plenty. 🙂 Most of these “whale poop” is a very important part of the ecological system of the ocean which enables the Plankton’s on the surface of the ocean to grow by feeding on it. The plankton contribution to produce oxygen for the atmosphere, is invaluable for our planet, without oxygen, all life form on earth dies.
Planktons produce more oxygen to the atmosphere than all the plants combined. We have the earth covered with 80 percent of water. There is more oxygen coming out of the ocean than all the forest on the land which is approximately 20%. The merciless Japanese and Norwegians continue to kill our biggest friends on earth, based on false scientific research pretence. As they have found a loophole in the moratorium that “BANS”. Whaling must be stopped at all cause period. For their pleasure of their palate and gaining financial benefit, we cannot allow them to continue to destroy our planet indirectly.
We all have a responsibility to stop this wanton slaughter of our humongous elegant friends of the Oceans. https://www.ted.com/talks/asha_de_vos_why_you_should_care_about_whale_poo
