Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

This Feel Free Friday post is in solidarity with those bloggers who tirelessly fight to keep marine animals free from captivity.Dolphin FFF1

Amber Danette (pseudonym) @ http://orcafreedomfighters.wordpress.com/ ( Freedom for Cetaceans) is particularly the voice for marine creatures kept in captivity.
Another blog site advocating for the protection of ocean life is @ http://oceanadvocatefl.wordpress.com/ .
Carmen Mandel presents the wonders of the natural sea world @ http://ofsharksandrays.wordpress.com/ (SENTINELS OF THE OCEAN) and is absolutely against the exploitation of any nonhuman animal.
Sea Shepherd, an international organisation, fights to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans.

A range of ocean life can be seen from the shores of the South African coast.

I had a special  experience of being close to whales swimming, unrestricted in the ocean. Here are my pics.                                                                                                                 whales3whaleswhales1

This was when I visited Hermanus, a charming town nestled between a mountain and the sea.

Hermanus is rated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) as one of the twelve best whale watching locations in the world.

Each year whales, mainly Southern Right Whales, migrate to an area called Walker Bay, part of which is a Whale Sanctuary.  Between July and November no boats of any kind are allowed in the Walker Bay Whale Sanctuary Marine Protected Area.

There were several ways to view this magnificent phenomenon of whales converging.

No high-five from whales ~ just a tails up to say thank you for leaving them to live in peace.

Thank you for not clubbing me to death for my seal fur

How I wish for the day when all marine creatures will be free from harm inflicted by cruel humans.

NO SENTIENT BEING SHOULD BE EXPLOITED FOR HUMAN “ENTERTAINMENT”. PLEASE BOYCOTT ALL PLACES THAT TRAP AND ABUSE MARINE LIFE IN ANY FORM!

Dedicated to all nonhuman animals who live and die in captivity!

      All compassionate people struggle with cruelty towards animals but yes, many choose to look the other way.
      It is important that we raise awareness so that people can make ethical and cruelty-free choices.

      All the best,
      Emy.

    I took a whale watching trip (the only time that I have done) eight years ago off the coast of Victoria, British Columbia, in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Although the whales are a popular tourist attraction, both jurisdictions (Canada and US) have legislation that the boats aren’t allowed too close.

      That must have been so special. Whales are truly magnificent creatures. Damn the Faroe islands!

        It cost $95 at the time, but it was holiday money and worth every cent. I thought of it as a once-in-a-lifetime trip. The main problem with taking photos, even with a digital camera, is reaction speed, so I have a lot of photos of whale fins, but not that many where a greater part of the whales’ bodies are above the surface. Also, the memory cards I had for the camera could only record a couple of minutes of film each.
