Das große “Grind”

Weihnachten ist eine Zeit der Tradition und der Besinnlichkeit. Doch es gibt Orte, in denen Tradition anders ausgelegt wird, wie zum Beispiel auf den Färöer-Inseln. Jährlich werden beim sogenannten „Grind“, Pilotwale aus traditionellen Gründen abgeschlachtet.  Auch dort ist die Bucht dann rot.

Auf unseren Touren können wir Pilotwale, auch Grindwal genannt, oft beobachten. So viele schöne Momente haben uns diese wunderschönen Meeressäuger schon geschenkt. Deshalb setzen wir uns für ihren Schutz ein

The big „Grind“

Christmas is a time of traditions and contemplativeness.  But there are places were tradition has another meaning, like on the Faroe Islands. Every year, at the so called „Grind“, they slaughter Pilot Whales for traditional reasons. Over there the bay turnes red.

During our trips we have observe Pilot whales quit often. We have been gifted with so many lovely moments in comapny with this beautiful marine mammals. Therefore we campain for their procession. More information here on onegreenplanet

O “Grind”

O Natal é altura de tradições e reflexão. Mas existem sítios onde tradição tem outro significado, como nas Ilhas de Faroe. Todos os anos, no chamado “Grind”, são assassinadas centenas de baleias piloto, pela tradição, substituindo o azul da baía por vermelho.

Em muitas das nossas viagens temos tido o privilégio de observar as baleias piloto, temos sido presenteados com momentos únicos na companhia destes animais. E por essa razão participamos na campanha para salvaguardar estes mamíferos. Para mais informação clique aqui onegreenplanet
