For the whales!

By Jarrod McKenna

My inspiration

Many of you know that I recently returned from Antarctica: the most magical, impressive, awe inspiring place I’ve ever had the privilege to visit. However, Antarctica and its wildlife are under threat from climate change, over fishing, pollution and blocked migratory routes. 

While many of us feel helpless… we’re not. Small changes we can make in our personal lives to decrease our carbon footprint or to live more sustainably make a huge difference.

But, to protect the whales migratory routes from the tropics all the way down to Antarctica, we need to make sure those routes are free from obstruction, pollution, and mining - which is exactly what this fundraiser will help with! WWF actively works in creating Marine Protected Areas to provide safe refuges for wildlife to live and adapt.

I've never felt more passionate about saving an animal species before. So much so, that if my $1000 goal is met… I’ll shave my head as an added incentive! 

With that in mind, please 
consider hitting the DONATE button to support our efforts in creating new marine reserves and protected areas so whales can live and move freely between the oceans they call home.
