Japan left the International Whaling Commission on July 1 and is now commercial whaling.
The Japanese whaling fleet whaling fleet killed 333 Minke Whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary and killed 150 endangered Sei Whales and Minke Whales and the North Pacific!
This Year Japan plans to kill 227 whales - 52 Minke Whales and 150 endangered Bryde's and 25 endangered Sei Whales. Japan is a rougue whaling nation and we need your help to stop them.
Great News! Iceland did not not kill any endangered Fin Whales or Minke Whales last year and they are not planning to kill whales this summer. 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 plans to kill over 1,200 Minke Whales this summer!
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!
