    Normally I don't pin animal pictures with people in them, but this one I think deserves a spot if it will heighten awareness. Consider that, at the time the picture was taken, that particular whale was one out of tens of thousands of that (Right Whale?) particular species, among others, that were swimming in the oceans of our planet. Now they have to be protected or they'll be gone.
