Designing for a Porpoise

Aly has always been passionate about animals and conservation. At the age of 8, she had her first personal interaction swimming with a dolphin named Bailey at an interactive educational program in Bermuda, and she fell in love. She loved it so much, she even came back the next day and the teacher let her help teach the class. Recently, she decided that she needed to do something to address the strange and mostly negative relationship that people have had with cetaceans [whales, dolphins and porpoises] throughout history. She realized that the best place to start was where she could embrace her love of these magnificent creatures through artistic endeavors, including visual art, performing arts, and design. The "Whale Extravaganza" line is an extension of these efforts, and all purchases will benefit the whale conservation efforts of both the World Wildlife Fund and the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies.
