TEDx Talks
With an appreciation of flow and motion Peggy's life has been always been driven by passion. From surfing and skateboarding to the intimate appreciation what she calls the 'Cetacean Nation'. Discovering the transformative force of participation artwork through her Origami Whales project was the first step to realising that passion could be harnessed, amplified and ultimately inspire for a deeper purpose.

Surfer, Skateboarder, Artist and Activist.
Once the only female member of the famous Zephyr Skateboard team from documentary 'Dogtown and Z-Boys': Peggy’s love of the outdoors inspires her to travel worldwide in search of good surf. In 2004, she founded the Origami Whales Project to raise awareness about commercial whaling. She has also developed the Whales and Dolphins Ambassador Program and led campaigns such as ‘Let’s Face It’, which petitions to save New Zealand’s critically endangered Maui’s dolphins and Hector’s dolphins.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Thanks her and people who work on saving the whales/dolphin/etc. I hope she can bring all these whale arts to those countries still kill whales/dolphins and to teach the children and adults there and change the culture grassroots up.

..thank you ;';'
Why was Japan going to kill 50 hump back whales? Why? A display of the human condition at its worst. Sacred, beautiful animals such as whales and dolphins should be honored and protected. All animals should, they are a manifestation of the divine. This woman is amazing.
