Dear friends

Welcome to the WDCS e-newsletter.  Today we bring you shocking news that Iceland is planning to resume commercial whaling.  Read on to learn how you can join the campaign to end commercial whaling for good and have your say about the future of the world’s whales.

ICELAND TO RESUME COMMERCIAL WHALING

In a backwards step for the conservation of whales, Iceland has announced that it will resume commercial whaling in defiance of the international ban.  It plans to kill nine fin whales, an endangered species, and thirty minke whales a year. 

                                                      

The hunt will be in addition to Iceland ’s current whaling programme, which it says is for scientific purposes, and which will end with the killing of at least 30 minke whales in 2007. 

Iceland is also clearly planning to resume international trade in whale meat, as like Japan and Norway , its domestic market is stagnant and it cannot even sell the minke whales that it is currently killing.

Commercial whaling is cruel, unnecessary and threatens the survival of whale populations. 

Iceland believes the world has stopped caring about whales. We need to send a message loud and clear that we still care and that we do not support the resumption of commercial whaling and international trade in whale products.

Please send a protest e-mail to the Icelandic Government now by going to: http://uk.wdcs.org/go/NL061019whaling

Please join our work to end commercial whaling for good, by adopting a whale:  http://www.adoptawhale.com

Please send this e-mail to your friends and family and help spread the word.

We can only end commercial whaling with your help – thank you!
