Save the Cheerleader, Save the Whale…

 UPDATE: Hayden Panettiere: Save the Whales… Again!

While the title is a parody on the Heroes’ Save the Cheerleader, Save the World tagline from season one;  the parody line may be more closely related then at first glance.

If you are a Star Trek fan of the movies then you will know the storyline from Star Trek 4. The story is about an alien probe that came Earth searching to contact with the Humpback Whales. Unfortunately, in this future timeline, there were no more whales and Earth was under fire. While this tale is based in science fiction, the reality of today is still the commercial fishing of whales and dolphins which occurs oversees and in the near future could be extinct.

Hayden Panettiere, the Cheerleader from Heroes, stepped up to the plate and took action to prevent one such incident. I saw this first video on Access Hollywood some weeks back and was curious as to why she was crying in the promo clip. I thought this was from a scene she was acting in but in fact she was crying trying to save some dolphins. As a result, Japan has an arrest warrant out for her. I support Hayden for having the courage to stand up for what she believes and should serve as an inspiration for others.

Take a look at her heroics.

The second video is the PSA that Hayden did for saving whales. 


The last video, not to end on a sad note, I found a video of Hayden singing for Cinderella III which is quite good. Overall, I’m quite impressed by what she has accomplished and the hope that further actions can be done by all to preserve these beautiful creatures of the seas.

    I had read that they had issued a warrant for her arrest. I doubt that she will ever spend a minute in jail, however, I was impressed that even knowing there was a warrant for her arrest, she said that would not deter her from doing it again. That seemed pretty noble she seems to genuinely care about this issue and is not just a celebrity trying to attach their face to a cause.
