Making Dreams Come True…How You Can Help Wild Orcas

April 7, 2011

SunSuper Dreams is holding a contest right now, Make The World a Better Place, which does not end until April 30th, 2011. The contestants depend on the votes of the public to make their dreams come true and win the contest.

  Gwen Williams,  a young orca activist from Australia has entered the contest. If Gwen wins $5,000.00 dollars will be donated to the Orca Network . The Orca Network is dedicated to raising awareness of the whales of the Pacific Northwest, and the importance of providing them healthy and safe habitats.

The Orca Network is a very worthy cause, as so many wild orcas are in danger now due to loss of natural food sources and chemicals contaminants. Supporting Gwen means supporting wild orcas! 

Gwen’s dream is to help protect the wild orca species. Throughout the Pacific Northwest, their population is under threat from habitat degradation, loss of prey, industrial chemicals contaminating the waters, and more. Their numbers have suffered a steady decline over the years. Orcas are an integral part of the environment. They are also highly intelligent beings with complex social behaviours, and have captivated whale watchers for many years. To lose the family pods that travel through the Pacific Northwest would be extremely damaging to the environment, as well as a tragedy in human history. Many animals species have become extinct over the years. Lets not add wild orcas to that list!

    Gwen… you are a very smart and sensitive young lady! Keep spreading the word amongst everyone who will listen… but especially the young people who will hopefully inherit a world that still holds these incredible creatures dear. Godspeed.
