The Island of Maui, EARTH
The Center of the Cetacean Nation
"Seventy-one percent of the planet surface is ocean, fifty percent of it is the Pacific, and Maui is in the center of that-making it a grand place for the Secretariat of the Cetacean Nation. I am gratified that steps are finally being taken toward recognition of the Cetacean Nation ln the United Nations, and that Patricia Forcan, the politically astute President of the Humane Society of the United States, has told me she world agree to be the first Ambassador to it. Every year the Humpback whales migrate through the Pacific, in and around the Hawaiian Islands spending the winter months here, mating and birthing" - JCL
