Japan left the International Whaling Commission on July 1 and is now commercial whaling.
The Japanese whaling fleet just returned to port after killing 124 endangered Sei Whales
This Year Japan plans to kill a total of 227 whales. Japan is a rougue whaling nation and we need your help to stop them.
Great News! Iceland announced it will not kill any whales this year which makes two years in a row they have not killed any whales. We hope this whaling ban becomes permanent. We will continue to monitor this situation and will update you if there are any changes.
Norway continues to defy the commercial moratorium on whaling and has already killed over 400 minke whales this summer 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!
