Thanks to YOUR book purchases, JUST BREATHE Trilogy readers, I donated $5,000 to Whale Camp yesterday. This money will provide $250 – $500 allowances for up to TWENTY needy children who want to attend Whale Camp this summer.
Let me say that again. Up to TWENTY kids will go to Whale Camp because YOU bought my books.
I’m overwhelmed. Thrilled. Teary-eyed. You’ve literally made my dreams come true. Wouldn’t Gavin and Zoe be proud of us! :-)
Please take a moment to read this letter from Denny Bowen, the owner of Whale Camp. Thank you guys SO MUCH!
Thank you so much, Kendall Grey, for sponsoring so many new Whale Campers who simply could not afford the program without your help. This contribution will allow up to 20 new students to explore the whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, puffins and marine life in the Bay of Fundy.
Everyone has a connection to the sea. Life began there and people have deeply emotional and psychological connections with life and the ocean. The Bay of Fundy is a special place because life there is intensified by the highest tides in the world. Higher tides means more nutrient circulation, more plankton and more concentration of marine life and more whales, porpoises, seals, puffins and other sea birds in a compressed area. There is simply more to discover.
Students at Whale Camp of the Fundy Marine Science Institute connect with the life forces of the sea and planet in a deeply personal manner. They aren’t just observing and getting face to face with the whales; they collect data and analyze it. The data they collect reveal some of the hidden patterns of whale life. Which species feed where and why? How the feeding patterns relate to the tides. They do marine science. Exploration becomes Inspiration. But the best part is the personal connections they make with these life forces and the personal connections they make with each other. Whale Camp makes life connections.
The Whale Camp at the Fundy Marine Science Institute is more than a summer science program, it’s a life experience and an experience about life. Each day is filled with discovery and exploration. Whale Camp matters because it makes a difference in how we see and value our world.
Kendall Grey’s contribution will help us preserve the whales, heal the sea and ultimately, save the humans.
