THE YOUNG GIRL AND THE SEA
par ISABELLE

She could be the heroin of a Hemingway novel. Beautiful Barbara Veiga has actually been a nature defender since her childhood in Brazil. She now travels all around the world to take pictures of eco activists like those on board of the Sea Shepherd. She’s quite an adventurer, facing risky situations, while approaching huge mammals in antarctic or taking part to the fights against Whalers. Thrilling.

But when she speaks about these expeditions the light in her eyes makes you want to pack and join the trip right away, believe me !

Here’s a selection of her beautiful pictures. You probably will be able to recorgnise Paul Watson, one of the founders of GreenPeace. You also might recorgnise Paul Watson in this fabulous episode of South Park entitled « Whale Whores » -this is the french version, I couldn’t connect to the american version-. It’s still hilarious.

Barabara liked the video as well, she speaks french -besides portuguese, spanish and english-, by the way. What a girl.

Wildlife is in danger, let’s protect it and spread the information. Whales, dolphins, turtles need our help, and these « lopettes végétariennes incompétentes » from the Sea Shepherd need our support !

    i love your blog. the all pics are brilliant and i enjoy to reading too.
    and i am japanese.
    i love this beautiful world and all animals.
    but what is the real reason about sea shepherd campaign?
    to my eyes, they are just eco terrorist.
    whatever they said, they doing shady and illegal thing….. a lots.
    and i know people saying « japanese people are barbarian » or « whales and dolphins are our friends » , »they are smart animals »….
    what is the different between cows or pigs or chickens…
    they are cute and smart animals.
    and look at your own country.
    there are so many innocent kids are dying for sickness or war or something unfair reasons.
    why they don’t try to help them?
    those poor kids can’t any money for them?
    that’s why?
    i’m not blaming on you.
    don’t feel like that please.

    but if people can think about different cultures of other countries, and their life, and respect human rights, they should quit to doing the all illegal thing.
    because the whaling fishermen are just doing their job for their family legally.
    like your dad working hard for you!
    do not get brain washed by media so easily, please.

    thank you.
    respect + love =peace
