        The Islands and the Whales | Lesson Plan Clips

        This clip shows a grind, the traditional technique used by the Faroese to herd whales into the bay, where they beach and are slaughtered. Much of the footage is graphic. It may disturb some students, so prior to viewing you’ll want to warn them of the nature of what they are about to see.

        Clip 2: "The Sea Shepherd"

        In this clip, anti-whaling activists, including Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson, explain why they are trying to stop the grind. They insist that they aren’t trying to undermine Faroese culture; they are only trying to protect a sentient mammal species. They are challenged by locals.

        Clip 3: "Mercury"

        An elder explains why he doesn’t believe the claims that the whale meat is contaminated with mercury. Dr. Weihe understands why it is difficult to accept something that they can’t readily see, but cautions about the damage if they wait too long to act (to officially outlaw whale meat).

        Clip 5: "The Questions"

        Panelists make several strong statements and ask important questions: “One day in the future our children will ask us, why didn’t you stop? Why did it have to come so far, that the world condemns us and our children get sick? Not taking action would be unfair, to the 1000s of children we've tested"
