Stop whaling

The whales need you

In March 2014, the International Court of Justice ruled that Japan’s whale hunts in Antarctica were unlawful, following a court case brought by Australia. This prevented Japan from going ahead with the hunt last summer, but it was a short reprieve.

Now Japan says it no longer recognises the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice over whales. Since last summer, the Japanese whaling fleet has used Special Permits to hunt more than 300 Minke whales, including 200 pregnant females, 25 Bryde’s whales and 90 Sei whales. 

They have plans for another whale hunt in the Southern Ocean this summer.
