Stop Selling Dolphin And Whale Meat

      Melissa Sehgal

      Taiji, Japan

Yahoo Japan is selling whale and dolphin meat including from animals killed in Taiji, Japan! Yes, it's selling dolphins and whales killed at "The Cove."

I have been here in Taiji for the past 3 years documenting the dolphin and small whale drive hunt, captive selection and slaughter. I will never be able to forget their cries and the blood red water as killers slaughtered these intelligent, sensitive beings!

Amazon.com, the largest online retailer in the world, stopped selling dolphin and whale meat. Why can't Yahoo put the same policy in place for all its sites around the world - including Japan?

The Humane Society International and Environmental Investigation Agency have not been able to convince Yahoo to change despite evidence of meat contaminated with high levels of mercury and sometimes from animals protected by the International Whaling Commission. I need your help, though, because I know we can do this!

Here are some links if you need proof that Yahoo is selling these products right now!

Stop Selling Dolphin And Whale Meat

Please follow Amazon.com's lead and ban all dolphin and whale meat products from your site!

You will lose customers as people around the world learn that you are profiting from the bloodshed at 'The Cove.' Please put a policy in place immediately.

    5. New report: Killing for Commerce

      Pulin Modi
      Senior Campaigner

      Killing for Commerce, released today (June 6) by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), in conjunction with Humane Society International (HSI) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), details how Yahoo! Japan facilitates the sale of whale meat in Japan and how parent company Yahoo!, based in the USA, profits from the sales of products made from endangered whales.
      The report shows how Yahoo! Japan was in March found to be offering 249 whale products, including sashimi, bacon and canned whale meat, for sale on its fee-based sales and auction sites. That’s about 100 more listings of individual products than Amazon’s Japanese website was found to be selling when it was exposed earlier this year; in response, Amazon swiftly announced a ban on all such sales.
      The report also confirms that many of the products are from internationally protected great whale species including fin, sei, minke, sperm and Bryde’s whale – all of which are protected under the moratorium on commercia

      Every life on earth matters. We may not see the consequences of our actions today or tomorrow, but at some point in history, we will if we don't stop this. You wouldn't treat a person this way so what makes an animal any different? Is it because we call them animals? If so we can start calling them humans if you like.
