The Oceania Project - Caring for Whales, Dolphins and the Oceans

Animal Conservation Care, Protection and Information

The focus of The Oceania Project is Cetacea (Whales & Dolphins) but we realise that all species of life on this Planet participate in the intricate web of living systems equally with Humans. Thus all animals are precious and deserve care and protection. We therefore felt it important to include a selection of links to sites serving other creatures.

    Mahdhav Sarna - Artist
    My work focuses primarily on what we term as wild beings, those that are too often and unfortunately regarded as primitive or secondary to human needs and wants. A humbling and soul-satisfying love for Mother Nature and her eclectic collection of children has been a concreted constant, within the foundation of my spirit and being. With a hope and belief that we can reconnect and live aware in this world, with care, I ask you to join my journey. I want us to protect, preserve and nourish our world and all within it.
