BENEFITING: SEA SHEPHERD CONSERVATION SOCIETY

EVENT: 2010 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010

Joydeep Ghosh

THE STORY:

i've run marathons before, but those were all for myself. this one is different...Sea Shepherd (www.seashepherd.org) is a four star charity (highest rating a charity can earn) of incredibly dedicated volunteers with a conscience. you may have seen them in action on the TV series Whale Wars and they specialize in ocean wildlife conservation and habitat protection.
the reality is that as you read this, someone, somewhere is killing a dolphin or a whale in violation of all international law, and inflicting pain on an innocent, helpless, intelligent animal that has actually helped save many a human life.
dolphins and whales are drawn to humans, as we are drawn to them. its easy to hunt them... they come right up to the boat or ship to greet the humans...and get killed - in the most gruesome way possible - in return. what amazes me is that even in their most angry, frightened, terrified state, they never attack humans. Are we insane as a species??
without your support, this tide of cruelty will continue to wash over us, sweeping away the mimimum standards of decency expected of a civilized society. One hundred percent of your contribution will go toward either the Antarctic Whale Defence campaign or the movement to save Japan's dolphins from the cruel fate seen in the Academy-award winning movie The Cove.
remember, if the oceans die, we die. it bothers me a lot, and i'm not about to sit quietly and watch it happen. for the sake of future generations, lets preserve biodiversity now.
