Today is World Whale Day, an event started in Maui, Hawaii, in 1980, to raise awareness and to protect these majestic creatures and their habitat. But this is no backyard conservation event: it's also a fun opportunity to participate in the The Maui Whale Festival, that will feature a parade, live music, and other festivities!
