A Right Whale mother and Calf
With this most recent seal of approval, the US Navy is now free to deafen, maim and murder sea life in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.
They have been given Carte Blanche.
The might of our Military will now be allowed to forge ahead full steam, knowing well the consequences of their actions and leaving little doubt that in this country at least, the hammer will now be allowed to fall on those least able to protest.
The Navy’s war on whales has been waging for years now and groups from all parts of the world have lent their voices in support for them and other at-risk sea life, who are being harmed by these reckless and cruel actions.
Time and time again, US Courts have taken the side of the Navy, to the great peril of all ocean dwelling animals.
Along our Florida Coast, the Right Whale who comes here annually to give birth, is barely hanging on by a thread and has only a few hundred surviving as of this date, as does their counterpart on the Pacific Coast, the endangered Blue Whale.
So why then are military actions said to be for protecting the freedoms and liberties of this country being allowed to continue, when they are causing the deaths of countless animals that are already verging on extinction?
Perhaps the UN could intercede on their behalf, as we have so often done with countries whose practices, ” we have not approved of, ” and demanded a change in their chosen course?
Or, it may be that the time has come for those in charge of American Military war games to demonstrate a bit more compassion, and humanity, when dealing with animals?
Could they even possibly show a bit more respect for the views of those who firmly support the belief that all life is valuable, not just the two-legged ones?
Carte Blanche does not have any place in the world of endangered animals.

All in the name of power and greed…
The use of low sonar frequency by the navy and its adjuncts disturbs communications between whales. Amazingly, whales can communicate using low frequency sonar across hundreds of miles. Navy use of these frequencies, altogether unnecessary, endanger these remarkable, awe-inspiring animals. Thank you for bringing to light the plight of these immense creatures who should be protected, not damaged, by our military forces!
Thank you so much for sharing your obvious depth of knowledge on this sad, sad subject.

A post well worth a read 🙂
Thank you so much Adam and God bless you for the wonderful things that you are doing.
And God bless you too 🙂
Thank you for sharing this informative, interesting post. I love your blog 🙂 thanks, kind regards Adam
The feeling is quite mutual, love yours so much~
This is truly heartbreaking. I have spread the word to stop this from passing. The military protects us, which I understand. However, being that these creatures, and many other are protected, are they not breaking the law that the government passed? Do they get a free pass because it’s for “the good of the People”. What of those that feel this is horrible and disgusting. These creatures are not only stunning and fascinating,but they create balance in the ecosystem of the ocean waters.
Thank you Taylor for helping to keep the pressure on.
They may be the powerful, US Navy, but at some point, even they must answer to a higher power.
I truly believe in Karma.

Thank you for alerting us to this.
Dear Jean. Thank you for caring and sharing. We must never stop.
The American Military Industrial Complex will never become compassionate. If they can’t be with human life, how could they ever be with animals. There is a moment called reckoning. It serves a purpose.
Oh Eric, how I wish that you could be wrong.
It’s absolutely horrific to hear what mankind continues to get away with.
There is so much more, but only so much can I bear to speak of here for fear of making all of us sick!
This is a tragic miscarriage of justice. What chance do these majestic marine creatures have when children are merely collateral damage impeding the imperial march?
How perfectly you express the truth of it all~
