Whales are a popular topic with the celebs lately. Linton just gave us a tip of Hayden Panettiere‘s PSA for Save the Whales Again! Pierce Brosnan, Alexandra Paul, and Australian actress Isabel Lucas are also on board with this international conservation campaign.

The campaign is aimed at ending whaling worldwide while raising awareness to all the threats dolphins and whales face. The growing threats include: toxic pollutants; deadly high intensity sounds produced by military sonars and airguns; by-catch, with some 300,000 dolphins and whales lost every year – drowned after they become entangled in fishing nets and other fishing gear; over-fishing of prey species; ship strikes; climate change affecting habitat, migration routes and prey species availability; habitat destruction; and increased whaling.

Hayden has actually been a part of this campaign for 2 years now. I love me my Heroes, and it seems that now that they saved the cheerleader to save the world, it only seems appropriate that the cheerleader saves the whales. Much of the Heroes cast is involved in this effort to Save the Whales Again, including cutie Noah Gray-Cabey who stood on a box to say “On TV, we’ve got one of the best jobs on the planet playing make-believe heroes trying to save the world. Well, as you can see, this stuff kind of rubs off on us… So here we are now, real people trying to make a real difference in the world.”
