Whales all over Panama City

I’m happy to say there are whales everywhere in Panama City! In preparation for the IWC meeting, Greenpeace teamed up with NOAA and local NGOs to place billboards of whales everywhere. You can’t miss these billboards right now — everywhere you turn you see one.
Over the weekend we took a walk along the Cinta Costera, which is a boardwalk near the ocean. Every billboard along this boardwalk is about whales. We pulled out our banner and had a little fun, check out the photos below.
It was donations from supporters in the U.S. that made this happen, so on behalf of the campaign team I’d like to say thank you. It’s amazing to see all of the support garnered here for whales. From cab drivers to representatives from all over the world – everyone knows all about these gentle giants here in Panama.
