Whale meat. You wouldn’t eat it or serve it for dinner. But a few stores still stock their shelves with it in Japan even though the popularity of eating it is rapidly declining.
One of these retailers is called FamilyMart. Our colleagues in Japan and other environmental groups have pressured them to stop selling whale meat, but the company refuses.
FamilyMart has locations here in the United States. The stores are named Famima!! and there are ten locations in the Los Angeles area. It may seem like a small amount of stores, but Famima!! has announced plans to expand their locations in the United States. While they don’t sell whale meat in the United States (it’s illegal) they continue selling it in Japan.
Take action today and tell Famima!! that if they want to expand in the United States they must cease supporting the illegal and immoral ongoing whale slaughter in the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary, undertaken on an annual basis by the Japanese whaling fleet.
Together, we can help save the whales!
