These Sea Shepherd Whale Campaigns Will Get You Hooked on Activism

These Sea Shepherd whale posters hit a home run when it comes to raising awareness for a noble cause.

What you're looking at here is rows of posters impaled onto metal-spiked gates. Each poster features a unique picture of a whale, which represents one of the 172 that were killed this year. The posters come with a byline that assigns each whale a number as well as text that reads, "Every dead whale is one too many. Help us save them all."

More startling than the poster itself though is the way in which it is presented to the public. The fact that these Sea Shepherd whale posters are lined up in a row and displayed in such a grotesque manner really makes viewers contemplate the atrocities that are being committed to the majestic beast and make people want to help in whatever way they can.
