START A PETITION

Target:
Australian Government
Whale Call, an Australian based NGO, whale conservation and research organization, in its bid to have a halt placed against the illegal and inhumane slaughter of threatened and endangered species of whales, including 50 endangered humpbacks, an act which is under international condemnation, puts it to the Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, and the Federal Minister for the Environment, Malcolm Turnbull, what their intentions are to saving these whales, and to make a pledge, to protect them in their feeding grounds in Australian Territorial waters, which the Japanese Government's 'JARPA 2 whale research program' plans to slaughter over 1,000 whales this year.

Not only is this an illegal and inhumane act, but you cannot eat whale, or even dolphin meat for that matter. It is very poisonous, being highly toxic with methylmercury, PCB's, cadmium, and dioxins, and is unsafe for human consumption, especially pregnant women and young school children who are being fed whale, and dolphin meat, in Japan's school canteens. Also their pets health is at risk. Dog biscuits are made from whale meat and cat food from dolphin meat. The dangerous health problems caused from eating whale, or dolphin meat, is called Minamata Disease, and goes straight to the fetus of a pregnant women upon consuming whale meat. Another very good reason for Japan, and other whaling nations, to put a halt to their whaling programs.

Whale Call would appreciate your caring participation in signing this very important petiton so it can be presented to the Australian Government.

Warning; the accompanying film is very graphic and children should ask their parents to supervise any viewing.

“every drop of rain that falls ends up in the mouths of whales – it is up to humans to control what substances enter that raindrop during its journey to the ocean”
