A Million Voices for the Whales

Whales needed help and you jumped into action to help save them. While the Obama Administration proposed a deal that would re-open commercial whaling for the first time in over two decades, activists, like you, spoke up for the whales by saying, “enough is enough!”
And, our collective voices are being heard! Today, I had the pleasure of delivering your messages to the White House. Your voice joined a million others in speaking on behalf of whales all around the world. Thank you.
Activists and supporters showed their love for whales by creating origami whales, participating in our photo contest, taking action online, tweeting and spreading the word on Facebook.
Commercial whaling is cruel and unacceptable. That’s why this proposed deal to re-open commercial whaling is so outrageous. In just a few weeks, the International Whaling Commission will gather in Morocco to vote on changes to the international ban on commercial whaling.
The Obama Administration will be at these negotiations knowing that millions of Americans back home are routing for the whales and not the whalers! Keep your fingers (and fins) crossed that whales will be spared from the path of deadly harpoons.
