Officials in Japan have just confirmed that they will be attempting to lift a ban on commercial whaling
in order to begin killing whales again for profit. The official request will be made at an International Whaling Commission meeting in September.Please sign this petition urging Japan officials to reverse course and leave the ban in place!
Japan hasn't specified details of its proposal, including what species it hopes to target, but any efforts to bring back commercial whaling should be squashed now. It's a brutal and bloody process that can lead to a slow and agonizing death for hunted whales. We must stand up for these gentle giants and fight any attempts to bring back the cruel and inhumane slaughter.Sign now to join in demanding that Japan end any efforts to bring back commercial whaling now!
