Searching for dolphins and whales

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston was in better spirits when we posted on him here.

The Times reports that when he first made history by sailing around the world alone, “the seas were alive with whales, and dolphins swam alongside his yacht. This week he finishes his latest epic voyage. But in 30,000 miles he has not seen a single whale. Instead, he bemoans the fact that the oceans have become overcrowded with giant container ships. Three times they have nearly run him down.”

WWF, the Worldwide Fund for Nature founded in 1961 by Peter Scott, Sir Julian Huxley, and Max Nicholson, is trying to save the dolphins and whales. Go here to help dolphins. And here to help whales.
