What has been discovered in the town of Ojai is historical. Help preserve and foster the understanding of the Ojai Valley Whale Society - adopt a bone today! I've had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Plunkett for many years and watched him bring this project from the beginning to the present as he shares this discovery with the world.
I met Aaron and provided assistance to the Ojai Valley Whale Society in November 2008. His energy and dedication to the preservation of whale fossils found near Ojai is outstanding. So is his organization.
I have helped the Ojai Valley Whale Society for a number of years, and have watched their successes and challenges be handled with equal grace. What I love about OVWS is that they encompass many facets of life, not just animals. Of course animal welfare is paramount, for both the living and fossilized creatures, but they also provide education to local schools and of course worldwide via their website www.ojaivalleywhalesociety.org. For me, the most fulfilling aspect of working with OVWS is their genuine respect for the local native peoples, the Chumash. I look forward to many more years of service to this worthy cause. -Warren
