We all know about the beauty of the largest animal on Earth, but still the whale lives under constant existential fear. Often, human beings do not see how important parts of the ecosystem are being threatened because the used medium for environmental communication is not attractive enough.
The â€œLofoten Whale Festivalâ€ combines important educational work with â€œartist and fun activitiesâ€ such as sailing trips, film interactions, talks and presentation, but also concerts, discussion rounds and party.
The meeting of humans and whales wants to appeal to children such as grown ups and is also aiming at boosting the local tourist economy.
