In the North Pacific, Japanese whalers can kill up to 200 minke whales, 50 Bryde’s, 100 sei whales and 10 sperm whales under the guise of scientific research. Vessels had been killing up to 935 minke whales and 50 fin whales each year in the Southern Ocean Sanctuary before the International Court of Justice ruled that this was illegal.

Dear friends,

For 30 years, Japan has been slaughtering thousands of beautiful whales despite a total global ban, but we can finally make it stop.

Right now, at a historic global summit on whaling, Australia is leading a coalition to help close the crazy loophole that has allowed Japan to keep whaling by claiming it’s for “scientific purposes”.

The result could be decided by just one or two votes, but if we make this huge in a few key countries and deliver a million signatures to their delegations just before the vote — just hours away — we can stop this whale slaughter for good, join now:

The situation has become so crazy that Japan recently killed 200 pregnant whales, and a Japanese website was just found illegally selling whale meat overseas!

The original ban on commercial whaling allowed Japan to kill a small number of whales each year for scientific purposes. But in reality it has become a massive loophole through which fleets of Japanese whaling ships sail every year.
