While for many people whaling is a definite no-go there are still some people who need to be reminded of this. But more than advocate whale conservationism this movie illustrates the beautiful complexity of nature. The concept of trophic cascades shows how intricate and interwoven earths biosphere really is, it is a blueprint for sustainability. The movement of ocean life, whales especially is responsible for just as much mixing of the ocean layers as all the waves, weather and tides combined. Picture a moment the sheer power of crushing waves, and then realise that whales have the same impact. If marine life allready influences the bio- and atmosphere to such an extent, how can anyone doubt the devastating effects we as a species have on our planet?
