Save the Whales in Japan

The government of Japan has announced its withdrawal from the International Whaling Commission (ICW) and has lifted the ban on commercial whale hunting in the name of research. In the last few years, Japanese whale hunters have hideously killed over 330 minke whales in the Southern Ocean including more than 120 pregnant whales. Japanese whalers have also killed more than 50 minke whales in an Antarctic marine protection area last year, WWF has revealed.

The whale is one of Earth’s most magnificent creatures. But over the last two centuries, they were hunted mercilessly for their meat and oil. 

It may be the flash of a tail, a plume of vapour or, if you’re lucky, the giant body breaching the surface. Anybody who’s ever seen a whale will tell you it’s an unforgettable experience. And we’re determined to make sure it’s an experience future generations can enjoy. 

Please support our petition and tell the International Organisations and the government to pressure Japan to stop murdering this majestic animal and together we can save this magnificent creature.
