Stop the Proposed Whale Slaughter

2 posts in this topic

One of the remaining Bush appointees in our government

is our representative to the International Whaling

Commission (IWC). And like the man who appointed him,

William Hogarth is wreaking destruction on our planet

and its inhabitants.

On February 2, Hogarth submitted a proposal that would

lift the international moratorium on whale hunting.

Tell President Obama you don't support U.S.-sanctioned

killing of wales! >>

Hogarth brokered a proposed deal that would allow

Japan to do new "coastal whaling" in exchange for

ramping down so-called "scientific" whaling over the

next five years.

But a slow decline in one type of whales being killed

in exchange for opening a new group for slaughter is

not a compromise that's acceptable! Hogarth's proposal

puts the threatened coastal Japanese whales at even

greater risk. The IWC needs to instead focus its

attention on stopping whaling altogether.

Conservationists have worked so hard to ensure that

whale populations do not decline from human hunting,

since they face so many threats from ship strikes and

global warming. It would be a shame to destroy years of

conservation work to broker a compromise when what is

truly needed is an international enforcement on the ban

on whaling.

Urge President Obama to instruct Hogarth that the U.S.

does not condone whaling >>
