In conversation with Asha De Vos:

Protecting blue whales, oceans and inspiring the next generation of marine biologists

“I was one of the little dreamers and I loved to be outdoors. I love water and I used to read the National Geographic magazines and it was a dream for me,” says Dr. Asha De Vos, marine biologist and ocean educator who has spent most of her life at sea, studying about blue whales in the Northern Indian Ocean. Her dream is to be a voice from a part of the world that is rarely listened to. Having initiated the Sri Lankan Blue Whale Project for nine long years, Asha believes that much more needs to be done in terms of marine conservation and protecting these giant creatures in particular. Asha will be delivering the Wildlife and Nature Protection Society (WNPS) lecture this Thursday on the topic ‘Blue Whales in a Changing World’. Keeping this in mind, Life Online sat down to have a casual conversation with this passionate blue whale and ocean lover.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I’m a marine biologist and ocean educator and my project is titled the ‘Sri Lankan Blue Whale project’ which is Sri Lanka’s first long term research project of the Northern Indian ocean. I have been running this project for nine years now. It has been quite challenging to understand these whales because I found that they were not migrating from their territory. They have adapted to their specific areas and that made me be more concerned about how the threats in these areas would affect them. My research is mainly focused on conservation but what is quite fascinating about this species is that it captures the audience’s imagination and I use that aspect to educate the people about oceans in general. In terms of my research one of the main things that I have been focusing on was the problem of ship strikes. This is one of the biggest threats they face in our waters where they get hit by ships and get killed. They are an important natural resource in our country and we have a whale-watching industry that is totally dependent on these animals. So what we need to think about is what threats they are facing and how do we actually protect these animals.

by Desmond Kelly “the Star of eLanka!”

They say “time flies”, but who will ever forget Princess Di, the “Princess of the People”who died as the result of a car smash-up, exactly twenty years ago.I write this “story” for readers of ELanka and also for my readers of The Lanka Times, in Melbourne who, perhaps missed an excellent “Sunday-Night” Special, which I have just watched. It was shown on Channel 7, advertising & all, but I did HAVE to watch it because it WAS about Princess Diana, indeed, one of the most beautiful of English Roses who ever grew, not just in England, but anywhere else in the whole wide World.

Sir Elton John, played piano and sang his dedication to the Princess, with the above “title” replacing the “hit” of 1973, “Candle in the wind” which, strangely, was another “dedication” to Marilyn Monroe who had also died very young, under tragic circumstances. Two of the most beautiful women in the World, taken away much too early in life. Stranger, too, was the fact that both Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana died at the tender age of 36.
