We demand that you keep your election promise and send the vessels into the southern waters to stop the Japanese from illegally whaling in the Antarctic waters. I want you to take a second look at the whaling problem and realise it really is a big issue. Thousands of whales are being murdered each year and even after your pre-election promise you’re just shrugging your shoulders and ignoring this issue. The vessels YOU PROMISED should be cruising around the waters this second. Your decision to change from the custom vessel to aeroplane was wrong because the aeroplane can NOT intervene against Japan. Action is needed urgently because whale populations are dropping dramatically, if it were any other animal slaughter you would stop it in the snap of your finger, so what’s so different about whales? I believe that whaling is a very important problem and that you are in the right position to tackle this issue. You need to take action against this slaughter before it is too late. If you leave this problem unattended there will be species of whales in line for extinction. You made a pre-election promise to send vessels into the ocean to stop the Japanese from continuing to disturb whales and the oceans eco-system, if you cared about the environment and our mammals you would follow through with that promise. Your action is needed because you are the only one who can put an end to whaling in the southern ocean. If you continue to send out the custom vessels as promised Japan will be forced to cease whaling in the Antarctic Oceans and you can save 1000 whales each year. If you put your foot down on this issue other countries might offer similar support and whaling could be stopped completely. This should be a priority of yours and the rest of the government. The world is watching you and it is time to take a stand. Action is needed now more than ever as the whale population continues to decrease. We ask that you stick to your previous promise and send out the custom built vessels instead of the aeroplanes. This will show that you care about the habitats and welfare of our marine life and will also make Japan think twice about taking the lives of our mammals. If they can get away with this what else are they getting away with? Yours sincerely, Kelly Neuss

If this petition gets enough support, it will be sent to Tony Abbott in the hope that he will take action against whaling like he originally promised. Japan will then be forced to stay out of the Southern-Antarctic waters for good, despite their "Scientific Research" permit that has allowed them to continue.
