Take Action to Save Whales
Whales are facing dire consequences from the actions of Japan and other pro-whaling nations, but you can help! Join our Save Whales—Not Whaling campaign by taking action today to help save whales!
The goal of our campaign is to educate the public and politicians about the threat that commercial whaling poses to whale species, the use of trade sanctions to force nations to cease their commercial and so-called scientific whaling activities, and the necessity of creating whale sanctuaries that provide safe havens for whales to breed, feed, and calve away from human predators. You can help!
