We believe that Whaling is a very important issue. We also believe that

you are in a position to take action to address this issue. In particular we would like you to address such as japan and Norway who still do whaling to change this horrible action. Whaling happens in many different countries. But the main countries that attend in this horrible act is Japan and Norway. Whaling began in the Arctic and spread to all the oceans of the world. It has been done all over the world for a thousand years but in Britain, it started in the late 1500s. Other European countries had a whaling industry too France, Denmark, Holland, Spain and Germany.

From 1952 until 1962 a whaling station operated at Tangalooma, Queensland, on Moreton Island, which harvested and processed 6277 Humpback Whales during that period. It was forced to close after it had drastically reduced the number of whales in the eastern Australian Humpback population.

Your government minister will be judged on its ability to enforce, apply new laws and ensure whaling ceases to exist. The eyes of the world are watching, obviously it is time that action is taken to stop whaling once and for all. This will increase world peace and harmony within these beautiful marine creatures. The goal of my campaign is to ban all whaling in international and local waters. Whaling is a shocking act that has killed millions of innocent whales. The Japanese say that they hunt these beautiful creature for research, but really they are killing these animals for their oil and blubber and turning them into products that they use in food and pharmaceuticals. My campaign is important because I personally think it is an inhumane act. Whales are beautiful creatures and have an important role to play in the ecosystem.

I have chosen this information as it clearly tells you about what the people are doing to our whales and that this incident needs to stop now before these beautiful animals become extinct. If these animals go extinct the whale watching company will go broke and no one will see these creatures.

Now, more than ever, whales and dolphins need your help. These animals are facing more crises than ever before loss of habitat, marine debris, and the negative effects of active sonar, pollution and collisions with high speed vessels. Please contribute to Pacific Whale Foundation so that we may tackle these problems. Together we can make a difference we trust that you will act promptly on this matter.

Yours sincerely

Josh Key
