Japan continues to hunt whales every year despite it almost being 30 years since the ban on commercial whaling came into effect. They say that they hunt whales for "scientific research" but in reality it is nothing to do with science.
Whales are already struggling to survive against pollution, climate change, ship strikes and entanglement in fishing gear as well as Japan's harpoons. As I type this post (July 3rd) HSI are in Panama attending the 64th Annual Meeting of the International Whaling Commission, where they will fight for the whales.
We can help by clicking here and telling the Japanese prime minister that whaling is a inhumane, a dying industry and now is the right time to stop.
