President Obama, Say No to Commercial Whaling

    1. Sponsored by

      Greenpeace

If you’re a whale (and, we’re guessing that you’re not), public enemy number one to you right now is President Obama. It’s hard to believe, but unfortunately true.  The Obama Administration is proposing a deal that would re-open commercial whaling for the first time in over two decades. 

President Obama has been backing away from his promise to save the whales and instead moving towards a deal that would benefit corrupt Japanese business ventures. 

Tell President Obama that this is outrageous. Commercial whaling is cruel and unacceptable. We WILL NOT stand by and watch commercial whaling paint our oceans red with the blood of whales. 

Sign the petition and tell the President to keep his promise to save the whales.
