This surreal short video made by Gentleman Scholar for Whales and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) is so striking, you have to see it (make sure to watch in HD and full-screen mode):

It silently makes the point that if whales and dolphins (and other ocean creatures) were floating around us all the time this visibly, maybe we would care more about their protection. Sadly, for most people, what's out of sight is out of mind, and our ocean ecosystems are suffering tremendously from overfishing, pollution, and global warming.
