My name is Tim Johnson and welcome to Americas Whale Alliance.  This site is dedicated and centered around those large majestic mammals that inhabit our oceans… whales.  Don’t let the word “Americas” throw you off either.  

This is a place of discussion for all the world’s whales.  This site has no ties or affiliation to any American group.  All are welcome to read, share and discuss topics about sperm whales, killer whales, beluga whales, blue whales, or any other type of whale that comes up.  

There will be structure to the site.  I will take an organic approach to it and anything that comes up that discusses whales in any type of form will be posted.  

So why am I starting this website?  Well, its pretty simple.  I like them whales.  I’m not sure why I like them but I do.  And I have enough admiration and more importantly I have some free time on my hands that I can start this project.  I actually feel that, along with being the right time, just a simple admiration for something is the best reason to start a venture.Me, well, I’m just a 51 year old guy who has an appreciation for whales.  I am currently living in Portland, OR but I am originally from a small coastal town called Cannon Beach.  I miss the atmosphere there very much and go back as much as possible.  I can’t say for sure, but I’m fairly certain that the area that I grew up in is where my appreciation of whales came from.  I have fond memories of me and my family going on whale tours back in the day and I remember it always being a great time.
