Bottlenose Mom with Baby
The 2022 International Whaling Commission Meeting
Next month our President & Founder, Jeff Pantukhoff, will be participating and filming the International Whaling Commission meeting which is being held in Portoroz, Slovenia from October 17 - 21, 2022. Jeff will lobbying various government officials on behalf of the world's dolphins and whales who have no voice at these meetings.
Jeff will be working to stop the whaling and dolphin hunts in Japan, the whale hunts in Iceland, and the whale hunts in Norway. Below you will find the current updates on these countries.
Japanese dolphin hunters started their brutal dolphin hunts this month on September 1 in Taiji, Japan and these hunts will continu/e until mid April. The quota allows for up to 2,000 dolphins to be killed and captured including bottlenose dolphins. Last year the dolphin hunters killed 498 dolphins and captured 65 for marine parks.
Japanese whalers left port to start their whaling season on April 1, 2022 with the whaling season ending this December. This year Japanese whalers are planning to kill killing a total of 383 whales including 171 minke whales, 187 Bryde's whales and 25 endangered Sei whales.
Last year Japanese whalers killed 171 minke whales, 187 Bryde's whales, and 25 endangered Sei whales.
Japan is a rougue commercial whaling nation and solphin killing country and we need your help to stop them.
After a 3 year hiatus, Iceland is currently killing endangered fin whales again. It has a quota of 161 fin whales and there have been over 100 killed this summer so far. We will be pressing Iceland's government to end these cruel and needless hunts.
Norwegian whalers killed 575 minke whales last year and are now whaling this summer, already killing over 500 minke whales. Norway continues to defy the commercial moratorium on whaling even though there is no real demand for whale meat in their country.
All of us here are committed to doing everything we can to help Save the Whales Again!
We thank you all for your continuing support and ask you to please donate what you can to help us!
