Today there is a new voice, to unite us all, continuing the message of those like Gandhi and Al Gore to focus the attention of the world toward the moral obligation we all have to make changes that will help to save our planet. It is the voice of the award winning globally released feature film whaledreamers. Featuring breathtaking cinematography and narration by Julian Lennon and Jack Thompson, the 'eco-sensitive' film addresses the spiritual bond that exists between whales, dolphins and the world's indigenous peoples.
