Migaloo2 Whale Ocean Conservation Yacht

Migaloo2 Whale Ocean

Conservation Yacht

The aim of yacht Migaloo 2 is to use it as a platform to raise awarness on important issues facing whales, dolphins and ocean health. The idea is to travel along the east coast of Australia during the humpback whale migration visiting ports along the way showing films and giving talks about these critical issues.

I also plan to do lots of live internet streaming from Migaloo 2 so the whole world including the Japanese can see what amazing beings the whales and dolphins are.

Another whale caught and nearly died in a fucking shark net on the Gold Coast today. How many whales and sea creatures need to die in these ridiculous ineffective shark nets before we as a species say enough is enough. They don't work. Senate enquiries Court cases , expert witnesses all say the same thing, Shark nets don't make us safer they just kill Marine life. Pull the shark nets up NOW. add your name here. www.change.org/p/queensland-minister-for-fisheries-stop-whale-entanglement-and-collision-and-secu...

Its not a whale rescue its another fucking whale entanglement in a fucking shark net. Im so pissed off with Queensland Gov that just refunded the shark net and drum line baiting program over the next 4 years to 17 million dollars and they only put one million into non lethal shark deterrents that are heaps more effective and don't kill our precious marine life. They appealed a court decision that said the lethal shark net program doesn't make people safer and ignored Senate recommendations to remove the nets. DAH. So angry. Talk about so last century, Boycott QLD.

Turtle hooked on QLD archaic drum lines meant to kill sharks. 😡😱 Stop killing and torturing marine creatures. Pull up the drum lines and sharknets NOW🐋🐬🙏ENDANGERED LOGGERHEAD TURTLE CAUGHT ON DRUMLINE On Wednesday last week, the Apex Harmony Crew were faced yet again with the sad sight of an endangered Loggerhead turtle fighting for life after becoming hooked on a Queensland Shark Control Program drumline on Queensland's Gold Coast at Rainbow Bay. Approaching slowly, it became apparent that this turtle was exhausted and distressed. As she surfaced for air we could see the hook caught in her lower jaw before she struggled to dive and escape. We called the Queensland Shark Control Program (QSCP) Manager who said the contractor was on the water replacing a net further north along the coast. The contractor attended about 3/4hr later. The hook came free from the turtle's mouth as she was dragged towards the boat. This meant the turtle was not taken to a rescue centre and we understand it is rare that this happens anyway. So the welfare of this turtle is now uncertain though we did see her surface for air once after her escape. We do not know the damage that may have been done by the hook or how she will cope after such a stressful experience. Turtles and Dolphins often come to feed off the bait on these large hooks – put in place by the Queensland Government's Shark Control Program. This turtle was lucky in that a Sea Shepherd crew was there to report this before it was too late, unlike hundreds of other marine animals who lose their lives to this outdated system every year. 156 turtles were caught in QSCP gear on the Gold Coast (2001-2019) and subsequently recorded as ‘alive’. Green – 23 Leatherback – 11 Loggerhead – 120 Olive Ridley – 1 As little as four were taken to care after the ordeal of having a shark hook through the mouth or other body part. A further 17 were dead. You can make a difference. Take action with a message to your local Queensland MP. Photo - Rebecca Griffiths/Sea Shepherd #OpApexHarmony ... See MoreSee Less

Totally agree !!!

Boycott Japan, Seaworld and any captive cetacean entertainment industry. Dolphins and whales deserve to live forever free in the worlds oceans. Another 18 dolphins captured for the slave trade in Japan. Shame on you Japan. 🐬🐋🌊🌈👌🙏✨Taiji: With today’s sunrise brought the 4th day of this pod of approximately 120 bottlenose dolphins being trapped in the Cove. Another day of a grueling captive selection process began, and a further 18 dolphins were taken into captivity, making a total of 71 dolphins stolen from the ocean for a life of slavery within the entertainment industry. The final group driven under the tarps for the selection process was the most panicked, many having already endured this abusive inspection yesterday. These dolphins fought for their lives to get away from the hunters and through the nets and the Cove turned red with their blood, spilling from the injuries caused during their fight for survival. After the captive selection process ended, the nets which separated the pod were drawn, and the dolphins immediately rejoined each other. Eventually 6 banger boats arrived and drove the remaining 50 back to sea. Now less than half of the original size, this pod did not immediately swim out to open ocean, but rather paralleled the Cove, where their family was ripped apart and important bonds severed forever. This suffering of this pod and countless others is directly due to the demand for captive dolphins for the worldwide dolphinarium industry, and atrocities like what we’ve witnessed over the past 4 days will continue until people stop buying tickets to dolphin shows.

Add this caption to the end of the following hilarious video of an honest add for Queensland tourism.
"Oh and don't forget the ferocious man eating sharks, hey but don't worry we have shark nets. Oh they forgot to let you know the sharks swim under over and around the nets so in reality they are just a placebo to make over seas tourist feel safe. Oh yeah and they kill all the marine creatures we tourist love to see."

Just love this guy !!!!

Maybe it’s time to start cutting the marine creatures free from the shark nets and not worry about being fined. What are they going to do if you don’t have the money or refuse to pay. What if some people without assets cut an animal free which they are allowed to do IMO and refused to pay and all went to jail and sent a global media message out to boycott qld and beaches that had shark nets, the nets would come up. Also going to court would be a good opportunity to challenge the illegality and danger of the shark nets and state that the government is not following its own senate inquiry recommendations and give it more media. I guess there is a strategic decision being made is a photo of a dying or dead sting ray having more effects at removing the nets than just cutting one free. At some point this strategy may need to be reviewed for another one. Just an idea.The Apex Harmony crew were out last week monitoring the shark nets and drumlines on the Gold Coast. 11 nets and 35 drumlines were checked and the crew discovered 3 rays trapped in nets. This cownose ray, pictured here, was found alive and fighting to free itself from the net. Authorities were notified and an offer was made by our coordinator to release the ray but this was point blank refused and no assistance was sent to release the animal from its suffering. After returning 4 days later, this ray was found in the same place, but now deceased. The last picture is from Sunday - 6 days after reporting this animal alive and struggling for life in this net, this animal is still there, after suffering a slow and painful death. This is the sad ending to hundreds of animals that become entangled in the QLD and NSW Shark Control Equipment and will continue to do so while the government keeps this archaic program in place. Non-lethal alternatives provide safety to beach goers without the deaths to precious marine animals. Please contact your state MP and local councillor to tell them you disagree with this cruelty.

Now would be a good time to write to Ballinas councillors to get rid of the shark nets and put pressure where it needs to go to bring about positive change and get the non lethal alternatives implemented and thank Keith Williams for his stand. It would be really useful in this process if you felt to invest a few minutes of your time to speak for the hundreds of marine creatures that will die in these nets if they stay up. if you could send an email to the following Ballina council and DPI minister outlining your concerns to the Ballinas councillors emails below. Its not rocket science. The nets are not working just killing our precious marine creatures. Its time to implement the more effective non lethal alternatives like drones.You can also see the page i set up for more info on why 'shark nets don't work'. www.facebook.com/groups/979516798866387/

Good news.

Migaloo Spotted off Port Macquarie today. He will probably pass Byron between midday monday and midday tuesday depending on how fast he is swimming. Head up to the light house and you may see him swim by. Im glad migaloo 2 is ready and I plan to sail out on monday to say hi. Bunna Lawrie told me the legend of Jiddera (migaloo) the white whale many years ago. Similar to the white buffalo he signifies a time of great changes on the earth. I hope all the whale watch boat on the gold coast and every where keep the required distance away and don't hassle him. www.migaloo2.com/homeThanks to ORRCA member Leigh Mansfield for these first quick photos of Migaloo this morning. A perfect day for whale watching a humpback superstar. More photos from Jodie Lowe to come later. ... See MoreSee Less

Christina Burki FYI. 💖

Just returned from my court case where DPI wanted to fine me $880 for leaving an object on land without permission. Well basically I won. I didn't have to pay any fines or the DPI s barrister fees. The area where i have tied up migaloo 2 for the last 16 months is not in a licenced area of the harbour hence anyone could moore there for free. DPI didn't like that and the yacht club wanted to expand their operation. Its a shame the Brunswick Heads yacht club, BHYC, refused me membership, guess they think I'm to much of a pirate and trouble maker and some old committee members didn't want me as a member to challenge their non democratic processes. After 12 months negotiating I agreed I would now move into a Coop mooring. I spoke to DPI reps about getting representation, (re the future development of the harbour region,) for the group of yachts who have been unable to work with or join the BHYC. Im happy to be here keeping an eye on this beautiful part of the world and look forward to getting migaloo 2 sea worthy and joining the humpback whale migration in August this year. Ill be doing a fundraiser soon at the Elixa Bar in Byron to help pay for maintenance so hope to see a few people there and hear about how we can help our marine brethren. ... See MoreSee Less

This is what we can do with great white sharks give them a tickle under the chin not tangle them up in rope sharknets drown them or kill them with drum lines. Stop putting fear into the water instead communicate telepathically that you are not food and you respect them as the ancients of the ocean. Then have fun enjoying the ocean and stop living in fear and putting up walls. Sharks are our friends when we give them a chance. Tell Blair no sharknets for Ballina.

Although a much more subdued visit then his last, crew were excited to see this incredible creature on his northern migration. There are strict watching guidelines in place for Migaloo.

Got a call last week that there was a stranded baby humpback on Seven mile beach. Zapped down there and some local lads had already helped it back out. Heard later that someone wanted it kept on the beach so Sea World Vet could come and see what the problem was. Sorry Sea world you have lost my and many peoples confidence especially after killing the Cabaret calf and others that stranded. Best idea if you see a stranding just ring some mates and help it out your self. Keep sea world out of it unless there is no other way. The pic and rave below is from ORRCA. They do a good job. just reckon we need a few free radicals to make sure the whales needs are always first and a whale isn't killed just for science. Shows to me rescue first, ask questions later ...... "A very young neonate Humpback whale stranded today at seven mile beach near Lennox head. Lots of wonderful people worked very hard to re-float and release the calf as there was a pod of Humpback whales just offshore. ORRCA volunteers and National parks staff stayed on site until sunset searching several beaches and watching from nearby headlands. The whole team is cautiously optimistic that the young calf is successfully reunited with its mum. Hopefully a case of misadventure not abandonment. Please call the ORRCA hotline 94153333 if you see any stranded whale or dolphin.
So many of our volunteers attended today and several were on standby for back up if the calf re-stranded... An absolutely wonderful team. Thank you!".

we did get drone footage of a baby whale that looked the same as this one swimming happily with 2 adults only 2 km away.and no reports of further beaching, a good result.

Thank you for saving Baby Humpback! So inspiringly wonderful

Thank you! hopefully the neonate humpback found its mum or was adopted by a passing pod.

❤️ Good job !!!

Im glad they were there.

Thank you for NOT waiting. Never wait for help please.

Following is the interview Eilish De Avalon did with me on Toads, Whales and my new documentaries God Molecule and the Shamanic Toad and "The Whale Whisperers"
Eilish De Avalon from We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For speaks with Dean Jefferys, documentary filmmaker of Shamans of the Amazon, who is now working on a new film called The God Molecule and the Shamanic Toad. youtu.be/R7GvGfWZfyY
Dean’s most famous documentary, Shamans of the Amazon was broadcast on SBS TV Australia and has become a cult film about Amazonian medicine shamans and the rainforest sacramental herbal tea called Ayahuasca. Dean is now crowdfunding for his new film The God Molecule and the Shamanic Toad, Eilish will be speaking with Dean in depth about his work and his passions.
Dean first got into film making as an effective tool to bring about social change filming protests rather documenting environmental activism protests from as early as 1984, during the Roxby Downs Uranium protests. “I flew over the main mine shaft in an ultra light aircraft and dropped a wreath of flowers onto the Uranium mine. The footage was picked up by the Channel 10 news network. It was then that I realised the power of the media and the importance of creating your own media.”
Dean has two passion projects that he’s running at the moment, these two passions been a major part of his life; communicating with whales and Shamanic practices in the Amazon. His classic film , has become a cult film on shamans and Ayahuasca. It was one of the first films to be made about Ayahuasca to Western audiences and we’ll speak about it to the film maker in depth.
Dean works from the Marine Conservation Yacht, Migaloo 2, which is moored near Byron Bay, he moved to Northern Rivers of New South Wales in 1992 after coming back from filming in the Amazon for the film Amazon – The Invisible People. The documentary was taken up by SBS TV.
To Dean, success is about living his passion, recording and sharing wisdom gained from the journey. My passions are for social justice and consciousness change. If you’d like to watch his previous work, here’s the link to his previous film Shamans of the Amazon. For more info on Dean’s adventures, go to this link
“When I experienced the venom from the Sonara Desert toad in Mexico, I could see the great potential this medicine had for helping to create a quantum shift in global consciousness. So I wanted to explore the traditional use, not only of toad medicine but other uses of the particular molecule, which is called 5-MeO-DMT. My plan is to do some crowd funding. I’ve become disillusioned with traditional funding and distribution models so am exploring crowdfunding and pay per view as a distribution model, by-passing traditional funding and distribution and going direct to an interested audience.”
The God Molecule Crowdfunding campaign. www.indiegogo.com/…/the-god-molecule-an…/x/13295701…
Another film Dean is working on is called the Whale Whisperers. “The reason why both these films interest me is because I believe we need to develop ways of, as humans listening to the natural world, listening and doing what is necessary for the planet to bring about appropriate change. Plants and animals have secrets hidden away which are available to us if we care to look. Whales, toads, vines of the amazon all have magic if we are willing to investigate. The secrets are understanding our self and connection to the Great Spirit and understanding our relationship with all life.”
As his passions and filmmaking are intrinsically linked, as much as he likes hanging out with whales Dean wants to share how deeply we can connect so others can have these amazing experiences.
“It’s the same with the medicine plants, they are my passion and I want to share how they can bring about a consciousness shift. The two are one and that’s my life.”
Tune into our show on CCN, We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For to chat about the magic of whale dreaming, marine conservation, South American shamanism, vine and toad dreaming and opening one’s consciousness to the God Molecule from right on board the Migaloo 2.In our confusing and often frightening times, the need for truly empowering FREE & INDEPENDENT MEDIA has never been more necessary.

Woow first day of Anna Breytenbach Animal Communication workshop in Byron was amazing. Some great insights how to prepare your self for the age old practice of Telepathic Communication with animals, plants and other energy fields. Looking forward to going out in the ocean to see and communicate with the whales, sharks and other marine creatures off Byron on Monday. Does anyone have an important question they would like to ask any marine creatures. I certainly do. If you haven't seen her Communicating Telepathically with Spirit the Jaguar in Africa check out this link youtu.be/gvwHHMEDdT0
And great insight into Great white sharks in her
ANIMAL SPIRIT NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2015
to subscribe to Anna Breytenbach's newsletter and more info on Animal Communication see www.animalspirit.org
This year has seen a noticeable increase in shark numbers and activity in the warm Indian Ocean waters off the Western Cape of South Africa. Within a couple of months there were three incidents involving injury or battle between man and fish in the sea – the most famous of them being Mick Fanning during an international surf contest. Two local surfers have also been bitten, one of whom lost part of a leg. Notably, these surfers are not antagonistic towards sharks as a result. To the contrary, they have a deeper sense of the rightful place of sharks in the ecosystem and a sense of compassion for even those animals who caused them physical injury. I’ve met with one of the young men and am inspired by his depth of care for and connection to the natural world. However, people are understandably eager to find out why some sharks are much more frequently not only occurring inshore, but also engaging with humans. That’s how I came to be communicating with the collective of Great White sharks in the area, and what they had to convey is in the article below.
Why Catching a Wave is not a Good Idea
Great white sharks do not want to eat us, nor do they mistake us for seals or other of their usual meals. They are very aware of humans being different to other species, as we humans give off a certain range of characteristic frequency emissions by virtue of our intrinsic biological make-up and the electromagnetic frequencies we emit (from our hearts and brains, for example.)
So-called attacks aren’t “attacks” in their view – meaning that the motivation is not “attack”, neither from an aggressive nor a defensive position. Instead, what drives shark behaviour is curiosity. They approach people in the water for this reason. Some factors make them more likely to approach – but they do so pretty obviously, not hiding their “reconnaissance” or eventual circling if it even comes to that. The problem usually begins when the human notices the shark for the first time and then reacts in a huge way.
Let’s examine the trajectory of a close encounter of the shark kind. Sharks test objects by mouthing them; they are very tactile animals and do this countless times per day with all manner of objects, animate and inanimate. The underside of surfboards, kayaks, wave-skis, etc. with limbs protruding from them activate in the shark brain a “search image match”. Both the shape outline and movement (skegs, fins and paddles slicing through water) resemble their natural prey – even though the sharks’ other senses are telling them otherwise. As their eyesight isn’t very good though, the rough resemblance is enough to warrant closer investigation on their part. So they approach. So far so good.
It’s what happens next that can result in human injuries sometimes. Statistically infinitesimally few times, by the way. Almost all the time, the “big fish” story ends there – with an amazing sighting up close and perhaps a passing glance from the shark who continues on his or her more important business.
When following pure curiosity and encountering a fear response from the human, a shark’s predatory instincts are highly activated, making it more likely that they follow through with a tactile investigation. This fear response from the human makes us behave like prey. Our behaviour needn’t even be thrashing or splashing; just the surge of emotion and thoughts associated with fear have intense wave qualities that are universally understood across species. As we emit panic or fright or other forms of feebleness, we’re as good as broadcasting our status as “prey”. Suddenly we’re of more interest to the shark. If a “test bite” then happens, the shark quickly realises we aren’t food, and doesn’t come back for more. Notice how so-called “attacks’ don’t involve the sharks wilfully finishing off the surfer/swimmer/diver. Typically it’s a case of one bite and then they’re gone. The fact that one bite may be fatal to the human body is nothing to do with them, and certainly doesn’t imply that they intended to kill. It’s only us humans who add that meaning to the scenario and project qualities of aggression and meanness onto sharks. A reputation they don’t deserve.
There are a few factors that are leading to an increase in encounters with sharks close to shore. Changing sea temperatures are causing huge spikes and falls in populations and disrupting their movement patterns. There’s an unusually high number and density of mature male sharks in South African waters at present. The tourism activity of shark cage-diving (which involves luring white sharks close with bait) is making sharks become more familiar with humans in general and therefore lose their natural avoidance of us. They still don’t exhibit any aggression towards us for this practice – but we’ve “trained” them to become comfortable with being up close to people in the water.
Environmentally destructive fishing practices are literally wiping out marine food sources, particularly medium to large sized fish. This scarcity of nourishment is altering behaviour within groups of sharks. Again, not because humans are regarded as alternate food! However, competition between sharks in the same area is magnified. The constant daily activity of food predation has taken on a competitive angle. This is where the interspecies dynamic becomes interesting…
Local Great White sharks are apex predators who are competing with each other in the hunt for food. Kayakers, wave-skiers, surfers, body-boarders, spear fishermen and other such sportspeople are also in the water… also hunting! And to some degree also competing with each other. Amidst the fun of riding the waves, there’s often an element of vying for the best spot, performing better than the other people in the water or achieving some kind of peak experience. Whether hunting the perfect wave or ride, we’re essentially emitting predatory signals into the surroundings. Other predators notice this energetic reality on a quantum level – and come closer to check out this other predator… in this case, a human. Especially as our athletic antics in the water are messing up their hunting. Essentially, if we’re trying to “catch a wave", we’re in “hunter” mode. Which puts us in direct competition with any other hunters nearby.
So what can we humans do? Aside from respectfully leaving the water for a while if the sharks want the space? When in the water, we need to adjust our state of being. A human exuding quiet confidence and peacefulness will not engage a shark’s predatory investigation. Remaining calm when seeing a shark can be difficult because of our unfortunate cultural and media-induced programming, however. Preparing ourselves energetically before entering the water will help. Focus on calming yourself and staying present with your natural breathing rhythm. Create some helpful visualisations that work for you. It’s important to stay out of unhelpful feelings – as nervousness and anxiety attract sharks. To stay out of Fear and Resistance for example, focus on the opposite states of being: Love and Acceptance. Even just by silently saying these words to yourself will invoke your body’s electrical signals to be in accordance with those more peaceful moods. Another very effective practical tool is to visualise a cocoon of calmness around you like an energetic shield. Simply imagine that there’s always this space between you and anything you don’t want close; picture it being like a space-suit you’re wearing that extends a few metres beyond your body, all around and above and below. Adjusting your relationship to the experience you’re seeking in the water is also important. Instead of hunting or catching the wave, be in the flow – literally and figuratively.
The bottom line is that sharks mean humans no harm whatsoever. They deserve humans reciprocating with respect and allowing them to be themselves in what is after all their natural home.

Just had another beautiful week out in Hervey Bay sailing on migaloo 2 with the whales. Enjoyed some magic time on kgari Fraser Island northern tip in the sand dunes and the boys even went for a surf. No shark paranoia for them. Roonies was full of whale magic as usual and we all felt very blessed to be in the whales and dolphins presence. This week is the week Japan wants to start killing dolphins in Taaji. We prayed and visualized that this sadistic practice will end and all cetaceans will swim free in the worlds oceans. More info see www.migaloo2.com ... See MoreSee Less

iPhone ruff edit of the migaloo 2 journey so far Started aug 2015 OMG we have been seriously blessed and bathed in whale energy. It's been two ways too which has been extra nice. This whale swam with us for almost an hour going belly up underneath us three times while Rainbow Eagle gave it some ancient vibes with his didge. Feeling their desire to connect with us as more than observers. We have had several eye to eye encounters that I have no words for. Still digesting the exchange. Have done ceremony where we have felt there desire and invitation to connect deeper with them. Glad to have another few weeks up here to drop into a deeper telepathic level with them. To see my next documentary I'm making called. Whale Whisperers. And support my crowd funding campaign I have 2 days left to reach my $4000 target that will get me some much needed equipment so I can share this magic with you and more.
