Humpback Whales are People too

I found this video from the Great Whale Conservancy and wanted to share it with you because of the pure emotional display of our cousin, a Humpback whale dubbed Valentina. The video is the product of, and is in itself, an earnest display of empathy, a call to action around fishing practices and re-envisioning the modern diet (for more on this one, oh you just wait for my next post!), and proof that our non-human family feels emotion just as potently as we do.

The full story will be aired on ABC’s 20/20 on Friday, August 19, 2011.

When you watch it what does it make you feel?
