Hi Dolphin, Whale & Ocean Lovers,
It's been over 9 years since our international spokesperson and star of ABC's hit series "Nashville", Hayden Panettiere, put her life on the line by paddling into the blood filled waters of Taiji's notorious dolphin killing cove and was accosted by the dolphin fisherman causing an international media frenzy which helped raise awareness to this cruel and needless slaughter.
Our founder, Jeff Pantukhoff, is continuing our ongoing efforts to stop the slaughter of dolphins and whales there but unfortunately, the dolphin killing by Japanese fisherman still continues in Taiji and the Japanese whaling fleet has just left Japan and is heading to the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary to kill 333 minke whales this winter.
We will be returning to Japan this spring so we need your help and support now more than ever to help us stop the needless and senseless killing of dolphins and whales there!
The good news! Iceland did not kill any endangered fin whales last summer!!
The bad news, Iceland is once again planning to resume its hunt of 155 endangered fin whales again this summer.
We will continue to monitor this situation closely and we will not rest until Iceland stops killing all whales!
Norway continues to defy the commercial moratorium on whaling and plans to kill over 700 minke whales this summer!
Minke whales are the smallest of the great whales and are very beautiful and intelligent creatures who are also very curious and interactive with human divers. Norway, like Iceland, believes that no one cares about their illegal whaling activities but we have news for them: We do! Norway killed over 650 minke whales last summer and we are currently planning events to shine the spotlight on Norway as well so we need your help and support now more than ever.
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 wish you and yours all the best for the holiday season and ask you to please donate what you can to help us!
