Whale Day is about helping people understand the aina and its wildlife and how better to protect all that we hold dear. So when I came out of my house across from the library and all the whale day floats were unloading in front of my driveway and blocking the road, I understood because it’s only for the one day. But when you left plenty cardboard rubbish all over the road blowing towards the same ocean you were ostensibly trying to protect, I got angry. Brah, please take your rubbish with you when you leave my neighborhood next time.
