World Whale Day
A day of celebration for all who love whales and dolphins
Solstice, Saturday, June 21, 1997
In the tradition of Earth Day, World Whale Day begins a new yearly tradition
at Solstice. Interested parties are invited to visit your nearest coasts
on Summer solstice(or Winter in the Southern Hemispere). Whales and dolphins
are invited to visit the world's shorelines on the day of highest or lowest
sun. A new covenant between human and whale nations shall be inaugurated--no
violence or killing of whales and dolphins by humans.
