Stop Whaling for Good
Petition Background (Preamble):
And this year, Japan is threatening to add endangered humpback and fin whales to its target list!
The Japanese government attempts to defend its whaling program by calling it "scientific" whaling. In reality, this deadly program is nothing more than unlawful commercial whaling in disguise. We don't need to kill whales to study them in the 21st century.
More than 30,000 whales have been killed since a global ban on commercial whaling came into effect in 1986. Japan must not expand its whaling program!
Tell Japanese Ambassador Ryozo Kato to immediately stop the senseless annual killing of whales, including the endangered Humpback.
Demand The whale sanctuary to be a completely protected Marine Sanctuary and end the hunt for good!
