From the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Group; https://uk.whales.org/
Mark I’m sure you are as upset and concerned as we are about Japan’s decision to leave the International Whaling Commission (IWC – the body that regulates whaling) to resume commercial whaling in the waters around Japan.
By leaving the IWC, the Japanese government has shown an utter disregard for international agreements and conservation efforts. Japanese hunters will kill sei, Bryde’s and minke whales in the same way that they kill around 3,000 dolphins and ‘small’ whales every year – in unregulated hunts with no accountability.
Please email the Japanese Embassy in your country to politely express your concern. Tell them that by disregarding the international community, Japan is harpooning its reputation.
You’ll find all the information you need, including a template email, on our action page.
Thank you for getting involved and speaking up for whales. Every voice counts.
On behalf of all at WDC,
Julia Pix, WDC campaigns manager.
P.S. If you can get to London on Saturday 26 January, you might want to join the protest march to the Japanese Embassy.
