Take action for whales

Earlier this year the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that Japan's so-called scientific whaling in the Antarctic was illegal. This landmark judgment meant that whales in the Southern Ocean were given protection from slaughter for the first time in more than a century. However, Japan plans to resume the killing at the end of next year.

Urge your government to ask the Prime Minister of Japan to respect the ICJ ruling and permanently end 'scientific whaling' (commercial whaling by another name) in the Antarctic.

We must ensure that the International Whaling Commission, which meets in September, takes a firm stance against Japan issuing any legal scientific whaling permits for whaling in the Antarctic or elsewhere. Instead, we encourage Japan to join the Australian-led multi-national approach to humanely study live whales in this area.

A quick note will help protect whales. We have prepared a template email for you to send. If you prefer, you can personalise this copy to make it more effective. Please ensure that you are polite at all times.

People around the world continue to say "no" to seal products, but the Canadian government stubbornly continues to finance and support the commercial seal hunt. The WTO recently ruled that animal welfare concerns about commercial sealing can justify trade bans on seal products.

Tell Canada that the seal hunt must end and that you will continue to defend your right to say "no" to cruelty.

A quick note to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will help protect seals. We have prepared a template email for you to send. If you prefer, you can personalise this copy to make it more effective. Please ensure that you are polite at all times.

We need to raise awareness of the scale of the illegal online trade in wildlife products, particularly ivory. Help us protect elephants and their ivory from being traded illegally on the internet.

Urge your Minister to strengthen laws and crack down on this crime.
