WHALEFEST 2014 (Portfolio's from the event in Brighton) portfolio Originally a job to do PR work for a great cause Whalefest turned out to be an event where I witnessed volunteers gather to create something really special. Passionate, devoted and caring people gave up days and sometimes months of their life to try and make the world a better place. The Volunteers (Heroes) of Whalefest are doing what the politicians will never do and that is to capture the hearts and minds of the next generation to help respect and preserve the worlds vunerable Whales and Dolphins. God love them this folder is devoted to the "WHALEFEST HEROES". FREE MORGAN.
