The International Whaling Commission (IWC) enacted a moratorium on commercial whaling in 1986, but Japan, together with Norway and Iceland, have since continued to brutally slaughter whales under the guise of 'scientific research'.
Japan's whaling fleet aims to harpoon around a thousand minke, fin, and humpback whales in Antarctic waters each year, causing these majestic animals to suffer extreme and prolonged pain before they've finally bled to death. In 2011, the Japanese ended their whaling season a month earlier than planned, but in 2012 they have set sail again to the Antarctic to resume the killing. Leading to the extinction of Whales.

SIGNING THIS PETITION DOES MATTER!
Please help to make sure that Japan realizes that the world wants to see a complete and permanent end to their whaling program by signing this petition to the Ambassador of Japan to Australia, Mr. Shigekazu Sato.
Let's put an end to this for the innocent animals who have lost their lives due to this disgusting slaughtering and to protect these gentle giants from future hunters.
This is leading to the extinction of Whales, after all the hunting, its gone from millions to just thousands of whales left. Please sign! Thank you!
