POLL: Should Norway stop the annual slaughter of whales?

In just a few days, will start up a horrific annual tradition — the ruthless of hundreds of whales. But we’ve got a strategy to say ‘NO WAY!’

Whales are awe-inspiring, beautiful beings. We now know they communicate with each other in song, and experience human-like emotions. But in Norway, every year these amazing creatures are hunted down and killed, then hacked apart to become animal feed and ingredients in beauty products. It’s unbearable.

has managed to slip under the radar as the #1 slaughtering country. But if we now rally unprecedented global outrage, we can push Europe to close its ports to ’s whalers. We did it with Iceland — let’s do it again!

Sign the petition to the Norwegian government, the European Commission and all leaders of countries that allow Norwegian whale shipments to pass through:

“As concerned global citizens we appeal to the Norwegian government to end the slaughter, and to all others to close your ports to Norwegian whale meat shipments. Your decision will set precedent that could save thousands of whales, and help stop whaling across Europe.”
