The Institute of Cetacean research (ICR) is a japanese whaling company engaged in the illegal killling of multiple species of whale all around the world. They claim to be a research facility but the animals that are harvested are immediately processed on their whale factory ship, the worlds only such ship. This allows them to hide their actions at sea. Their actions are a direct violation of International Whaling Laws and yet they are being allowed to continue their illegal behavior because the business licence is as a research facility. This petition is to shut down the company. This company is the one that is seen whaling on the T.V. show "Whale Wars".
