It’s terrible and beyond comprehension!
Do we really want to destroy the guardians of the oceans and our breathing air? Although it has been proven how important whales are for our very survival (see article below), Japan sent out its whaling fleet on 1 July, with permits to catch 227 whales.
Yes, whales are the guardians of the oceans and they are extremly endangered!
Did you know how crucial whales are for keeping the proliferation of plankton in balance?! Why is this so important?
Because these organisms are a vital part of the Earth’s life support system; they produce up to 70% of the oxygen we breathe! If the whales are being exterminated at this rate, the plankton will run riot causing the oceans’ temperature to rise, resulting in the extermination of the plankton we desperately need for the air we breathe! It’s a vicious cycle which needs to be stopped!
And did you know that whales change the climate?
When we kill the whales, we kill the oceans and ourselves too.
But unfortunately this happens right now
Japan’s whale industry just doesn’t care about our future. It costs them millions to slaughter whales, much more than they can make out if it, but are still doing it anyway. Recently they slayed over 120 pregnant minke-whales… Want to read more? Click here
And now they do it again…
And don’t get us started about Iceland.
When we heard that Iceland is still not willing to stop the cruel massacres of whales, we couldn’t believe it. We LOVE Iceland!?
How can they allow this cruel custom of brutally killing all these wonderful whales to go on in the 21st century? It’s insane! Want to read more? Click here
And on top of all this horror…
…we proceed to plastify our environment. The oceans in particular!
That’s why we wanted to do something.
Actually we are ashamed we didn’t do it sooner!
We decided to write a novel:
It’s a thrilling adventure about saving the whales, saving the oceans and a passionate love story against all odds.
You can get the book (Paperback or eBook) on Amazon. Just click here. It’s great reading, it’s exciting – you will love it – believe us.
…and it’s a wonderful gift for those who love whales and the oceans.
But the most important thing is:
At least 50% of our royalties are going straight as a donation to Greenpeace and the non-profit Sea Shepherd Conservation Society which is struggling so hard to save the whales and the oceans. The courageous crews on the Sea Shepherd vessels are risking their lives combating illegal fishing, whaling and seal hunting. We must help them!
Still you are right to ask: “Who are those guys?” and “will I like their book?”

To all artists: Please join us!
Japan plans to resume commercial whaling this summer. Let’s show them that we won’t tolerate these massacres any longer.
Whales are the Buddhas of the oceans, help us protect them. For further information or if you want to support the project, don’t hesitate to contact us – click here.
We thus seek to increase the awareness for these wonderful creatures, which will hopefully help saving their lives, with Whale-Meditations.
Studies have shown that when people, focused on a pre-chosen geographical location, meditate together, they succeeded to boost the energy level there, generating an upsurge of harmony and peace and a drop in crime rates and destructive actions.
Use the following six minute meditation to visualize clean oceans, whales and dolphins out of harm’s way. Imagine during your meditations that:
– Whales are safe from becoming extinct.
– The oceans are now being cleaned of plastic on a large scale
– Japan stops its commercial whaling
– The whole world realizes how vital the whales, the oceans and the oxygen-producing plankton are for our survival.
Any ideas in this context are beneficial, no matter how you phrase them.
And watch your breath… let the thoughts that come and go like clouds just pass by. Have fun with it.
“WhaleSpirit by Daniel Thomas is a spellbinding tale of adventure with a setting that is fascinating, plunging readers into life below the surface of the sea. A reporter who once took down one of the most influential men on Wall Street sets out for another bite of the man she humiliated when she hides her real identity and gets onto his whale research vessel. She quickly discovers that his life work has great meaning and that this research aligns with her values. This is a beautiful story that explores environmental themes and life beneath the waters; it’s a tale of love and betrayal, a story that creates the intersection between human life and the connection it has with other forms of life.”
Daniel Thomas writes with grace and at times I felt his words reaching my soul like deep waves of the ocean. The reader joins in an adventure with characters who know where they are going. While this is a work of fiction, it is infused with realism and features themes that are not just relevant but urgent, considering the numerous threats related to climate change. The characters are real, deeply human, and confronted with real-life challenges. The writing is composed to make for a great reading experience with sumptuous descriptive passages filled with powerful imagery. The author shows great knowledge of ecology and his voice comes across as something that resonates with the life forms beneath the sea. WhaleSpirit is ingeniously plotted, a work of great imagination. There is no doubt that this novel is enriched by good research because the author writes with unusual ease and clarity.”

“This docudrama kept me intrigued from the beginning to the end. I loved the fact, that it is not just a wonderful and touching love story, but shows also how much the authors care about whales and how we can do something to preserve these awesome mammals from being destroyed by materialist agendas of greed and power. The main characters of the story do their utmost bringing even their own life in danger to help the whales! What a passion to help! I wish a lot of people, young and old, will read this novel and maybe they will get active in ways they never thought of before reading the book. I thank the authors for their in-depth research on the subject and turn it into a most eye-opening, warm hearted, and thrilling novel!”
Dr. Lothar Woeller:
“The authors succeeded to portray the whaling issue and the protection of endangered species in their exciting novel. It would be desirable if other greedy fund managers followed the example of the protagonist McGregor. The book is extremely thrilling and entertaining to the last page”.
“I never knew this is actually a “thriller” about saving the whales.Great suspense, lots of action, but also very emotional. And I find it admirable that the authors are donating half of proceedings to a good cause.”
Dr. Manfred Link:
“An entertaining novel for whale fans, which engages heart and mind, leaving an unforgettable impression.”
“Great literature reviews”
“An exciting story about a passionate whale conservationist, sneaky intrigues and also of a great love. Right from the beginning “the Song of the whales” – now “WhaleSpirit” – grips your attention. Dramatic scenes on the sea are not just there for suspense. Have your Kleenex ready! The slaughter of whales is almost unbearable to read about. The book conveys the love for the giant mammals. Blue whales, fin whales, killer whales, one immediately develops affection for them, understands the magic and makes one sympathize and side with the whale protectors.
How can it be that such fascinating animals are close to extinction?
Why are there still countries which allow whaling legally – or illegally? As a reader you remain stunned and would like to start immediately engaging in whale protection. The story sets pictures and emotions in motion. When David is swimming with Whale Ketan, you can picture them clearly. Stunning scenes alternate with tragic events. You won’t want to put “WhaleSpirit” down. The ship’s crew of the SeaSpirit will immediately capture your affection right away. Although somewhat predictable, the story remains enthralling until the end. 416 pages gone in a whiff of time! And although the love story adds a bit of kitsch to the drama, it also ensures some of the best entertainment. Be assured that the sparks hit when a roughneck and a stubborn, headstrong young woman meet! Striking are also the descriptions of a wonderful nature, the hard life on a ship and the fight against the ruthless whalers. A pinch of humor is adding to some chuckles.
Summing up: Sophisticated characters, an unusual, captivating story and a great writing,
To present “WhaleSpirit” so close up, an intensive research was needed. This book is for sure a great inspiration for engaging oneself in how to protect the whales. It will deeply resonate in your heart and remain unforgettable. Written for all those interested in animal welfare, this book has done a most admirable job.
Who has not yet been impressed by nature and wildlife will be it now for sure!. One would even like to share David and Leah’s experiences with the whales. The story is so up to date, extraordinarily relevant in these times and full of many touching passages. The anonymous driftnet makes it clear how big the damage is we humans are causing daily to the oceans. Those readers who only appreciate the novel for a rousing love romance might have missed the depth and magic of this story. Definitely a great read!”
Can’t believe it – Japan left the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to start commercial whale hunting again!
That is crazy!
And… did you know that about 18,000 baby penguins…
hatched in an Antarctic colony last winter, but only two survived!
The rest starved because of industrial-scale fishing… countless other polar species could be wiped out. The only way to save Antarctica’s ocean is by urgently protecting it. Want to sign the petition? Click here.

Plastic, plastic, plastic…
Do you know the “joke”: ‘What do bowhead whales and plastic bottles have in common? They can get several hundred years old and live in the sea.’ That’s right and it’s not a joke… it’s a sad reality. And often enough the plastic ends up in the stomach of a whale. At least 8 million tons of plastic waste leak into the world’s oceans every year.
