Sing to Save the Whales every year on May 15th

We invite schools, ecology clubs, church groups, organizations and individuals to participate in our annual Sing to Save The Whales Day held each year in May. Seven years ago Joan Cobb—a songwriter and music teacher—wrote “Save The Whales” for the Save The Whales website. That song inspired worldwide requests for the song and the creation of a CD entitled "Songs to Heal the Planet, Children Singing to Save the Earth" (click-here to learn more about this wonderful music CD).

Please sing along with us! We strive to have participation from around the world. We were pleased to have a school from Bremen, Germany, join us a few years ago.

The purpose of Save The Whales is to educate children and adults about marine mammals, their environment and their preservation. Save The Whales was founded by 14-year-old Maris Sidenstecker and her mother in 1977. Maris designed a T-shirt with a blue whale and the slogan, "Save The Whales" after reading a magazine article on whaling and an organization was founded. Maris eventually became a marine biologist and leads the organization today, along with her mother.
