Now and then there are very special things to do with kids and this is one of mine.
Whale watching is one of the most awesome things to do with kids. Activities for kids to do with animals while at the beach are double winners in my mind. Some of the very best things to do with kids include education about nature and animals and protecting animals against injustices where they cannot fight for themselves is important to me.
Did you know that The Great Australian Bight may be put at risk by BP who want to drill for oil? If you have been following this blog you may have already seen my posts Gift of the Gab and Sea Shepherd and such posts on this subject. Yes! I am very passionate about this!
You have probably heard of The Great Australian Bight and you probably know that it’s the bit on the bottom of Australia that looks like it has a bight taken out of it. But what actually is The Great Australian Bight? And why is it so special?
The Great Australian Bight used to be a sea bed. That is; the Nullabor Plain (another of Australia’s special and iconic places) which runs along The Great Australian Bight used to be a sea bed. It now sits above the Bunda Cliffs that are upto 120 metres high in some places, above the sea.
These cliffs, The Bunda Cliffs, are what make the iconic Great Australian Bight and they are the longest stretch of uninterrupted sea cliffs in the world.
This landscape, although awesome in it’s own right, also has many important inhabitants. One of my personal favorites are the Southern Right Whales. To these whales The Great Australian Bight is a nursery for the mothers and their babies and is a vital refuge for them.
While visiting The Great Australian Bight and watching the whales I was treated to a show from a baby whale, which we have named Noah on this blog thanks to Josie. Noah played as I would play when I was happy and unaware of any danger. I made a promise to Noah the baby whale that I would be his voice.
I say NO to drilling for oil in The Great Australian Bight and putting all the above at risk, and so very much more.
