In defiance of the ongoing global ban on commercial whaling, Japan has commenced their new commercial whaling programme putting hundreds of whales at risk of suffering long and painful deaths from exploding harpoons.
However, the Japanese people appears to be divided over whaling, in part as a growing number are concerned that it tarnishes Japan’s international reputation. Let’s make it clear to whale friends and foes in Japan that this cruel and unnecessary industry has no place in today’s world. Sign our online petition to save the whales.
