Let’s make a wave for whales

While you and I were celebrating the Earth and vowing to help protect the environment, President Obama was reopening whaling by announcing his intention to support a deal at the International Whaling Commission that would legitimize commercial whaling for the first time in over two decades. I’m not sure exactly what the President has against our oceans and whales, but we need to let him know that this is a horrible idea.

So, On June 3rd, Greenpeace will be delivering tens of thousands of names and messages to high-ranking officials in the White House.

But to really make a splash with our delivery event we need thousands more Americans to take action. So we’re starting a massive “Wave for Whales” online. You can help us kick off the Wave for Whales by copying and pasting the following message(s) to your Facebook and/or Twitter account.

Facebook:

Save the Whales! „ø¤º°¨°º¤ø¸„ø¤º°¨°º¤ Join the Wave for Whales at http://ow.ly/1D7Ig ¸„ø¤º°¨°º¤ Copy and repost this message to keep the wave going!

Twitter:

Save the Whales! „ø¤º°¨°º¤ø¸„ø¤º°¨°º¤ Join the #WaveforWhales http://ow.ly/1D7AF ¸„ø¤º°¨°º¤ RT to keep the wave going!

We only have until the start of the IWC meetings in June to convince the President that legalizing commercial whaling for the first time in over 20 years is a horrible idea. You can help make that happen by sharing the Wave for Whales with your friends and followers today. There’s not much time.
