Programs

Currently, through our "Save the Whales Again!" campaign, Whaleman is focusing its efforts on the following issues: Continuing our efforts to stop all whaling by Japan, Norway, and Iceland and attending the annual meetings of the International Whaling Commission (IWC). Continuing our efforts to stop the Japanese coastal dolphin drive hunts in Taiji, the Faroe Islands, and other coastal communities who slaughter over 20,0000 dolphins, porpoises, and small whales every year. Fighting for the regulation of Ocean Noise Pollution at the upcoming meetings of the United Nations. Continuing our efforts to protect Southeast Alaska's Tongass Forest from a massive clear-cutting initiative that was approved under the Bush Administration's deceptive "Healthy Forests Initiative". The Tongass' watershed, which encompasses Glacier Bay, a United Nations World Heritage Site, is the primary feeding grounds of the endangered North Pacific humpback whale and the spawning grounds of Alaska's endangered salmon. Continuing our research of contaminant levele of cetaceans in the Gulf of mexico. By determining the Gulf's baseline contaminant levels, we will be able to measure and compare future contaminant levels found to help access the overall cumulative impacts the oil spill will have on the Gulf's marine life and human populations. Continuing to produce hard-hitting Public Service Announcements (PSAs) to raise public awareness to the critical issues facing the overall health of dolphins, whales and our oceans. Continuing to produce films on the critical issues facing dolphins, whales, and our oceans. We currently have a groundbreaking documentary film in production.
