am urgently trying to reach as many concerned people
as I can to seek your help in the campaign to save
the great whales.
Over the past several weeks, government officials
in two countries have announced plans to hunt endangered
whales and reopen the banned trade in whale meat.
I need your help to stop this madness before it's

decades ago, horrific images of industrial whaling
operations first inspired a global movement to protect
these magnificent creatures. Men and women of conscience
across the planet joined together to end this cruel
and outmoded practice and rescue threatened whale
species from the brink of extinction.
This global grass-roots effort achieved an important
victory when, in 1986, a worldwide moratorium on commercial
whaling came into effect. Since that time, millions
of people around the world -- from schoolchildren
to senior citizens -- have come to learn more about
our neighbors from the deep.
We've learned that whales are intelligent animals
with close-knit family groups, that many are highly
migratory, regularly traversing the depth and breadth
of our ocean planet, that whales are social creatures,
communicating across great distances with unique songs,
clicks and calls, and that new threats such as pollution,
ship strikes, entanglement in fishing nets, acoustic
disturbance and loss of vital ocean habitat threaten
their very survival.
at the dawn of the 21st century, government bureaucrats
in two countries, Japan and Norway, want to return
to full-scale commercial whaling. They are finalizing
plans to kill more than 1,200 whales this year.
which has long objected to the IWC moratorium, will
kill more than 600 minke whales in the North Atlantic.
Japan, which uses a scientific loophole to claim its
whaling is for scientific research, will this year
kill hundreds of endangered Pacific minke, sei, Bryde's
and sperm whales.
Once they are butchered and boxed up for shipment,
these whales will make their way to market where choice
cuts will be sold as delicacies.
How can you help?
Unfortunately a minority of government officials in
Japan tries to cast the whaling issue in nationalist
terms, claiming that those who would protect the whales
are somehow "anti-Japan."
pro-whaling bureaucrats are clearly out of step with
the majority of the Japanese people. Polls in Japan
show support for whaling is dwindling among the mainstream
public. Whaling is vocally opposed by leading Japanese
environmental groups, and scientists have issued repeated
warnings that whale meat is contaminated with high
levels of marine pollutants and unsafe for human consumption.
of Japan's whale hunting is conducted around Antarctica
in the waters of the Southern Ocean Sanctuary. Japan,
the lone nation to vote against this internationally
recognized sanctuary when it was established, will
this year again sail its whaling ships into the sanctuary
and kill hundreds of protected whales.
back in Tokyo, Fisheries Agency bureaucrats are working
diligently to revive the international trade in whale
meat. Just last month, they announced Japan would
defy an 11-year-old global ban and begin importing
whale meat -- 100 tons of it per year -- from . .

moves by Japanese and Norwegian bureaucrats threaten

what you can do:
The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW),
one of the leading global conservation groups fighting
to protect marine mammals and their habitats, has
established this website to help people like you and
me take immediate action to save the whales and learn
more about what we all can do to help.
I have worked very closely with IFAW for the past
several years. Together we have spoken out and achieved
important victories for whales around the world. And
I am proud to join IFAW once again in this critical
effort to protect these majestic creatures.
The Governments of Japan and Norway need to hear our
voices now. It's time to save the whales again!

Thank you for your kind attention and support. If
we all stand together we can turn the tide.
