"Last Song of the Whales"

Savant Books and Publications LLC, Honolulu, Hawaii, publishers of significant books and enduring media for the 21st century, is pleased to announce the release of Four Arrows’ new book, "Last Song of the Whales."

In this novella, a humpback whale mysteriously takes a mixed-blood American Indian professor to sea. While struggling to survive and learning to communicate with a pod of whales, the man rediscovers his Indigenous roots. In the process, he learns that thousands of whales may be on a suicide mission in the North Pacific in an effort to end human pollution of the ocean. However, when he realizes the dire effects the whales' actions could have for all of life on Earth, he and the whale work together- against all odds—to warn the world in time.

Hope for the False Killer Whale around Hawaii

The NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) announced a victory: the Obama Administration has proposed putting Hawaii's near-shore population of false killer whales on the endangered species list. The move came in response to our formal petition on behalf of the whales. Only some 150 of these magnificent marine mammals remain in the wild. Their numbers have plummeted over the past two decades as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals, a reduced food supply and injuries from fishing gear.

"Endangered Species Act protections will give false killer whales a chance to survive, and will also help save their extraordinary habitat -- the ocean oasis surrounding the Hawaiian Islands," says Michael Jasny, senior policy analyst for NRDC's Marine Mammal Protection Project. False killer whales, like the orcas they resemble, are members of the dolphin family and normally live in deep open water. The dwindling Hawaiian population is the only group on the planet known to make its home near land. Adults can reach 20 feet in length and up to 1,500 pounds. They are highly social creatures and form close bonds with other members of their pods, mating for decades.

For our German friends

Für unsere deutschen Whalesong-Freunde:

Leider wurde unsere Webseite www.whalesong.info angegriffen und weitestgehend zerstört. Eine neue Webseite aufzubauen übersteigt momentan unsere finanziellen Möglichkeiten. Wir konzentrieren uns auf die neue Saison und hoffen wieder eine Live-Übertragung auf die Beine stellen zu können. Bitte bleibt uns dennoch treu!
