“Ambra leads our thoughts towards the universal aspect of being stranded in a wider sense; In spite of whales impressive physique or in the human case an intellectual force, we both are vulnerable and not at all invincible.
Could the blue whale´s declining situation be an omen, remidning us humans of the huge environmental challenges we face and that are caused by our own actions?”
