ATAAC | Australian Teens Against Animal Cruelty - The Whales Need Your Help
The IWC (International Whale Commission) has received a proposal to legalise commercial whaling.Japan, Norway and Iceland are the last remaining countries still killing whales for commercial purpose.

Now here is the shocking part - New Zealand is supporting this proposal.

The next IWC meeting is in Morocco on the 21st of June where the proposal will be voted upon and we need everyone in the world that is opposed to such a barbaric practice to make their voices heard.





If the proposal is passed the IWC will:

1. Suspend the ban on whaling by allowing the killing of whales for commercial purposes;
2. Re-open the Southern Ocean Sanctuary to whaling, reversing the IWC's own protections adopted in 1994;
3. Add new rights for Japan to slaughter whales for profit in its coastal waters;
4. Reward Japan, Iceland and Norway with guaranteed killing quotas for a decade, in violation of long-agreed scientific procedures and the global whaling ban.
5. Through this plan, member countries of the IWC are endorsing the gut-wrenching cruelty of commercial whaling: whales chased until they are exhausted, then shot with exploding harpoons, and then strung up and left to bleed to death or drown.

What you can do:
Please take action here! The thought that this proposal could be passed is absolutely HORRIFIC!

Please help. The whales are relying on you!
