Boston’s whales watching
Whale watching is the practice of observing whales and other cetaceans in their natural habitat and I was very curios and interested in this experience.
I just could not miss the change to see whales nearby Boston coast.
It was my first experience of that kind, and despite the strong light, the wrong sun direction, the 300 mm mounted on the camera, the boat moving, the dolphins and the whales swimming unpredictably everywhere, I got some decent pictures.
The rapid growth of the number of whale watching trips and the size of vessel used to watch whales may affect whale behavior.
Common rules must include minimize speed, minimize number of boats at any one time/per day, do not pursue, encircle or come in between whales, do not coerce dolphins or allow swimming with dolphins.
The three major whaling nations (Norway, Japan and Iceland) have large and growing whale watching industries.
Many people argue that a whale is worth more alive and watched than dead. It is also clear from most coastal communities that are involved in whale watching that profits can be made and are more horizontally distributed throughout the community than if the animals were killed by a whaling industry.
The experience of whale watching was just great and my feelings of pure love to them became tears when I saw them.
It looks like the only thing human beings can think about is if whales can be killed or not and eventually if they are more profitable class=”tablephoto” doing whaling or whale watching.
It looks to me that human beings do not deserve one single day more on this planet.
