A Whale Swimming Through the Forest is Beyond Beautiful, Thought-Provoking (Video)

WhaleinForest Video

This incredible video of a whale swimming through a forest is not only beautiful, it makes us think. What if whales were as easy to see as going to your local wooded area? Would we be better at conserving them? Is the fact that they are still under threat due to the fact that for most of us, whales are so far away from our everyday lives and environment? It’s a compelling thought.
