Take action to protect whales

On Tuesday December 1st, Japan's whaling fleet departed for the Southern Ocean to resume so-called 'scientific whaling' in the Antarctic. This is despite the International Court of Justice striking down Japan’s previous 'scientific' whaling program in March 2014.

Japan has designed a 'new' program to resume killing whales in the name of science and plans to cruelly slaughter nearly 4,000 whales over the next 12 years in an expanded Antarctic killing zone.

Last month, Japan also moved to exempt itself from any future cases about scientific whaling at the International Court of Justice.

Write to President Obama and ask him to challenge Japan’s plan to resume whaling and lack of regard for international law.
