    This is a important message. I am arguing right now with Japanese government about whalers harvesting humpback and fin whales in Antartica right now as they are potentially, critically depleteing this gene pool – they did not create!

  • I am hearing from people around the globe of different aspects of this issue of genetic rights. On so many of the points man’s already deep in violation of these rights. The price is so high, Dave; as you see! That is why the paintings must get out there and let people know of these rights that they do not even know exist. Thank you for your support and activism!
