About the Petition
An international court has ordered Japan to halt its illegal Antarctic whaling expeditions, ruling that the missions are just commercial hunting "masquerading" as science. Sounds like great news, right?
But Japan's prime minister has promised to keep up his fight against whales: "I want to aim for the resumption of commercial whaling." His fisheries minister went even further and ate a piece of whale steak for the cameras.
With many whale species still listed as endangered, it's past time for illegal whaling to end, and it's up to you to help get the job done! Prime Minister Shinzo Abe cares about Japan's international reputation, so sending him 50,000 SierraRise signatures can make a difference.
Sign the petition to tell Japan: The whole world is watching! Respect the International Court of Justice, and end illegal Antarctic whaling today!
