Wilfred Chivell of DICT attended the launch of Sacred Ocean, a new global anti-whaling campaign by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town, on Thursday 27 November 2008. Archbishop Desmond Tutu unveiled the iconic 3.4 metre high sculpture named Sacred Ocean, consisting of five aged whale bones supporting a humpback whale mother and calf, by renowned cetacean artist and conservationist Noel Ashton. A touch-screen was also installed where visitors can register their opinions on whaling and send a “virtual postcard” of themselves and the sculpture to three friends, urging them to vote and voice their opinions of whaling. Archbishop Tutu cast the first vote to launch the campaign. Please click on the logo belowto become part of this global campaign.
