Tell Japan: End Illegal Antarctic Whaling Today!
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 below to tell Japan: The whole world is watching! Respect the International Court of Justice, and end illegal Antarctic whaling today!
To: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Fisheries Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi
Endangered whales are an important part of our planet's threatened oceans. The whole world is watching: I call on you to follow the International Court of Justice's ruling and end illegal whaling in the Antarctic Ocean at once.
