Leave Sharks Alone, Says Tim Winton 

submitted by Jenny taken from theage.com.au
Tim Winton - the award-winning writer and avid marine conservationist has called for an end to what he's calling our "jihad" against sharks. "Australians have an almost supernatural fear and hatred of sharks," he says.
The hammerhead is already 89% gone.

HELP STOP JAPAN WHALING
Help stop whaling, bring Japan into the fold


Join the mass online protest against whaling in the Southern Ocean.

Create your own electronic whale out of virtual origami paper, and send it "swimming" with a personal message to the Prime Minister of Japan.
Click here to join the protest and send a whale

.

In just over a month, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) meets in Chile. Japan will be pushing hard for approval to resume full-scale commercial whaling.  We'll be delivering all the origami whales to the Japanese embassy in Canberra, highlighting them in the media, and showing them to IWC delegates in Chile.
 .
Meanwhile, Greenpeace has released explosive evidence of corruption in the whaling program - where whale meat is being stolen and sold on the black market.
.
The scandal - resulting from a 3-month undercover investigation by our team in Japan - has made the front pages of newspapers across Japan and brought the entire whaling program into further disrepute Increasingly, the Japanese public is concerned about their taxes subsidising an aging whaling fleet conducting fake science to justify a hunt for whale meat few want to eat. 
.
Now is the moment to increase the swell of international outrage about whaling with our "Origami whales" and bring Japan into the fold!
.
Click to make your origami whale today!

Thanks for your activism,
.
Rob Nicoll, Whales campaigner, Greenpeace Australia Pacific
