Spanish illustrator Roger Olmos and Dutch artistic director of Sea Shepherd Geert Vons have published a new children’s book called “GRINDADRÁP”.
The aim of the book is to make people of all ages aware of ‘all the crimes committed every day against the oceans and the creatures that inhabit it.‘
Grindadráp is an ancient way of whale-hunting still practiced today all over the Faroe Islands.

The aforementioned book has been published in collaboration with Sea Shepherd, which writes the following about it:
“Each year a thousand pilot whales and other cetaceans are killed in the Faroe Islands just to keep an old tradition alive. Each year, Sea Shepherd travels to these islands to photograph and document the slaughter that takes place there, increasing global public awareness.
“This book is a new, important memento that combines the touching story told by Geert Vons of Sea Shepherd with the evocative, vibrant images by Roger Olmos, vegan artist and animal-rights activist who has been promoting respect for the environment and all living creature for years through his art.
“With this book and in collaboration with Sea Shepherd, #logosedizioni is launching a new book series aimed at making people of all ages aware of all the crimes committed every day against the oceans and the creatures that inhabit it.”
