Dear, IWC, ICR, and Japanese Government Officials

Whales are smarter than the average fish. They have families and mourn when a family member is killed. The Southern Antarctic Whale Sanctuary was created to protect these magnificent animals from your greedy commercial whaling practices.

Sincerely, The Ocean Protectors

In 1986, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) enacted a moratorium on all commercial whaling. Since then, three nations - Iceland, Norway, and Japan - have brutally slaughtered over 25,000 whales for commercial purposes under the guise of scientific research. The IWC does not have the power to enforce the moratorium...we do. Together we can end this senseless killing.
