THE WATER YOU TOUCH IN A RIVER IS THE LAST OF THAT WHICH HAS PASSED,AND THE FIRST OF THAT WHICH IS COMING; THUS IT IS WITH TIME.

FAQs ,About marine animals in captivity:I would like to help raise your awareness about why, there is a demand to capture and keep marine animals in captivity ; to raise your awareness because :you're creating the demand when you are visiting a marine park like SeaWorld or MarineLand or if you participate to a swim with dolphins in a vacations resort's activities.
The demand cause a market for exploitation of sea creatures!
So here are some questions and answers on the subject:
PLEASE READ IT AND UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT YOUR DECISION TO PURCHASE TICKET TO ENTER THESE WATER-PARKS DOES HAVE ON THESE ANIMALS, MADE TO BE LEAVING IN THE WILD!
WHERE DO CAPTIVE DOLPHINS COME FROM?
Contrary to the popular perception that all captive dolphins are born in captivity, many of those currently in captivity were once wild and free. While some water parks obtain dolphins legally, others find that obtaining the animals through proper channels takes more time and money than they are willing to invest.As a result, a thrivi
A quote by Jacques Yves Cousteau" No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea. No dolphins or marine mammals who inhabits one of those aquariums or one of those marine lands parks can be considered normal."
Jacques Yves Cousteau.
Now, here is a quote from me:
Remember this: Every time you encourage a marine park by buying a ticket to see the marine mammals captive there, or on a vacation in a resort with a swim with captive dolphins, you are contributing to their captures and helping keeping them prisoners! It is as simple as that! And yes there is still capture!
If you do not like my quote, before posting an uneducated comment on my journal entry, do yourself a favour and please go on Google search and type: Where do captive dolphins come from.

A little info's on those white whales:Belugas are fund in Arctic and Subarctic waters along the northern coasts of Canada, Alaska, Russia, Norway and Greenland. It is estimated that between 72,000 and 144,000 belugas lives in Canadian waters.
These animals are distributed in the Western Arctic ( Beaufort Sea ), High Arctic ( Lancaster Sound, Baffin Bay), Eastern Arctic ( Cumberland Sound and Southern Baffin, Hudson Bay, James Bay and Ungava Bay ) and in the St-Lawrence Estuary.
This is where I come from, in Quebec, and I have the privilege to be able to go observe them at the site where the St-Lawrence and the Saguenay Rivers meet, at only just about 60 kilometers from my house.
There is less than a thousand of belugas there and this group of belugas are completely apart from the other groups; they stay there all year round and do not go up in the arctic waters. The region provides a lot of education and conservation awareness. Boat's excursions with scientists and marine biologists are provided to educate tourists and loc
SOME FACTS ABOUT DOLPHINS.SOME FACTS ABOUT DOLPHINS!
Dolphins are well known for their intellect, their gregarious nature, their sociability and their acrobatic ability; but did you know that to prevent drowning while sleeping only half of the dolphin's brain goes to sleep while the other half remains awake so they can continue to breathe!
TREATS TO DOLPHINS: as the seas and the oceans warms up, dolphins are being seen more frequently in colder waters outside their historic ranges. Due to the rapidly rising oceans temperatures, the dolphins primary food sources are seeking deeper cooler waters. Scientists are very concerned that dolphins will have difficulty adapting as quickly as necessary to find new feeding grounds to sustain their populations.
Some dolphins that live in areas where rivers and oceans meet, known as brackish waters, are loosing habitat as ocean levels are rising due to global warming. Let not forget also what humans are doing to these animals every year in place like Taiji cove, in Japan. One
It's time to stop this senseless slaughter now!!!DOLPHIN'S SLAUGHTER: in Japan, in the Taiji Cove, in fall & winter, every year, over 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are killed by Japanese fisherman; even more shocking, the captive dolphin industry and marine parks around the world are willing accomplices to the kill paying as much as $100,000.00 per captive dolphin.
Last year alone in Taiji, over 150 dolphins were captured and sold!
Even with all the attention created on this horrific Japanese custom by the award winning documentary film " The Cove ", the killing in Taiji continues.( Please watch the documentary The Cove, the images are very powerful and it will change your view on captive dolphins, I guarantee it )
The brutal massacre, the largest dolphin kill in the world, goes on for six month of every year from October through April.
The type of dolphins captured and killed include: bottle-nose dolphins, stripe dolphins, pilot whales, false killer whales, spotted dolphins, and Risso's dolphins.Since the hunts began and to date ove
Devious Journal EntryWe all can make a difference.
I was watching Ellen Degeneres on Thursday April the 5Th and she had a segment on people that are making a difference.
Her guest was Captain Dave, he was there to talk about an amazing whale rescue and the dangers from fishing nets that these beautiful animals face every day. Captain Dave spearheaded the organisations and trainings of OC's first whale rescue team.
He was explaining that in the US net are regulated and cannot be more than a mile long... ( 1 mile...any way) but that in some other countries where there is no regulations, their net are as long as ....30 MILES , yes 30... just try to imagine that distance in your head!
So these nets are destroying complete ecosystems because they are scraping the bottom of the ocean.At this rate Captain Dave was saying to satisfy our demand for fishes , in fifty years ... there will be nothing left in the oceans.
Now read carefully about this next and please share this information with as
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
