Like many people, I try to do my fair share to help the environment. I recycle, take care not to disturb the native plants and animals, and teach my children to respect the environment. But, I never thought about whale watching as an eco-friendly activity. In fact, I thought the OPPOSITE. Boy, was I wrong!?
According to the news website, weescribble.com, “Thanks to media campaigns by private and governmental conservation groups, whale watching is recognized globally as an important activity to promote conservation.” Why? “
“Informing people about the issues impacting whales and the oceans can result in behavioral changes — recycling, become involved in policy, and making (better) consumer choices,” WDC Senior Biologist Regina Asmutis-Silvia told weescribble.com “It also demonstrates that whales have a value alive, rather than hunted, from an ethical, environmental and economic standpoint.”
But, not all whale watching tours are created alike. So, it’s up to you to find out if you’re patronizing the right company when choosing a Hawaii whale watching tour. Here are a few things to ask when booking your tour, courtesy of weescribble.com:
When my husband and daughter returned from their recent Hawaii whale watching tour off the Big Island, they came back with an enormous amount of knowledge about whales and how best to conserve them. They said discussion surrounding conservation was a huge part of their experience.
However, that’s not always the case. In fact, even within individual companies, boat captains, personnel, and maintenance can change day-to-day. So, it’s important to ask these questions, even on the day of your tour and book your Hawaii whale watching tour through a reputable company, such as Hawaii Aloha Travel. That way, you can be sure you’re getting an eco-friendly Hawaii whale watching tour that’s in the business of conserving these incredible animals.
