Did you know that all Whale SENSE operators complete an ocean stewardship project annually? This ranges from beach clean-ups to hosting researchers onboard their vessels! So, while every day is Earth Day here at Whale SENSE, here are a few quotes to keep you inspired about protecting our world’s oceans and planet!

(1) “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

(4) “The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” – Proverb

(5) “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” – Jane Goodall
