945 WHALES WILL BE HUNTED THIS YEAR

945 WHALES WILL BE HUNTED THIS YEAR

945 WHALES WILL BE HUNTED THIS YEAR YOUR IDEAS CAN HELP SAVE THEM.

Dear friend,

In the coming days, the blue ocean of the Antarctic will turn to red.

The six-ship whaling fleet has left Japan, and is headed directly to the Southern Ocean. 945 whales, including ten endangered fin whales, will be killed – unless we do something to save them.

It’s time to put an end to whaling in the Southern Ocean. Forever.

Last year, your emails and activism convinced one of the largest seafood companies in the world to get out of the whaling usiness. This year, we’re asking you to join us in defending the whales from the very beginning.

We need the power of your ideas.

Post your ideas for new actions on the high seas to save more whales.

Join us for the final leg of the Defending Our Oceans expedition as we return to Antarctica to once again confront the whaling fleet.

Click here now to visit our new defending the whales site, where you can get inspired by other people’s ideas, rate them, improve them and add your own.

We’ll read every idea and you’ll see the best ones put into action.

We are all in this together.

945 whales are waiting for your help.

Sincerely,

Geird Leipol-Executive Director, Greenpeace InternationalGerd Leipold

    My goodness 945? There was a good debate on this over at BBC News early this year. I thought this is over already. I remember how Japan influenced other nations not to sign that particular I forgot what was that.🙂 It was like they silenced some countries, likened to vote buying.

    Whereas some organizations, individuals are fighting to No-Whaling, Japan was doing the opposite.

    That’s very sad! Damn those Jpas if they continue with this. Hmmm maybe a boycott of all anime products from them! Hmmm better think of a more effective route…

    Ipamema, as always, the rich and the powerful gets away with it. It is really sad Ferdz. Damn those Japs who kill the whales.

    Gone are the days when people needed to kill whales for oil to light up their lamps. The Japanese’s craving for whale meat has these whaler ships still roaming the colder seas to kill whales. Hard to shut them down if they do it within Japan’s 200 mile limit but to venture out into the open seas harpooning every whale they see is just too irresponsible.

    BW: Here is an update from Intenational Fund for Animal Welfare:” We are thrilled to report that on June 22, 2005, by a strong majority vote member countries of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) rejected a proposal put forward by the Government of Japan to resume commercial whale hunting, which has been banned by the IWC since 1986. 29 countries voted against the Japanese proposal, 23 countries voted for it and 5 countries abstained from the vote.

    Disappointingly, however, at the same meeting Japan announced plans to double its annual catch of minke whales to 935 from 440 and up to 50 larger fin and humpback whales to the list within a few years under its new so-called “scientific research” program. The program is widely viewed as a cover for a limited amount of commercial whaling.”
