Reform the International Whaling Commission

The Japanese whaling fleet is in the Southern Ocean again this year killing whales. And they’ll be there next year and every year after that if nothing changes at the International Whaling Commission (IWC). But there’s hope. Not only does President Obama have the power to make those changes; he’s already promised he would. Here’s what he told Greenpeace back in 2008:

"As president, I will ensure that the U.S. provides leadership in enforcing international wildlife protection agreements, including strengthening the international moratorium on commercial whaling. Allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable."

It’s time for President Obama to keep his word and save the whales. Tell him to end commercial whaling once and for all by reforming the IWC.
