Whales not whaling

Whales not whaling

A minke whale is hauled aboard a whaling ship

Many thousands of whales are killed every year in cruel and bloody hunts. The international ban on commercial whaling is under threat as never before.

There is no humane way to hunt and kill a whale at sea. Explosive harpoons and rifle shots can cause slow, excruciating deaths lasting over an hour.

Make your voice heard

Please write to the embassies of Japan, Norway and Iceland, telling them you find their cruel activities unacceptable and urging them to concentrate on sustainable and humane whale watching tours.

Ok Iceland and Norway Do Hunt Whales and This is Sad but Japan does it more.
