3. I saw a documentary on the leader of Greenpeace who then started the Sea Shepherd organization.

He talked about taking a small zodiak boat out to stop the harpooning of a blue whale. She was hit and an angry male blue whale then tried to attack the ship that shot the harpoon but left the tiny Greenpeace zodiak alone. Whales are such intelligent creatures.
