As a concerned citizen of the world, I urgently ask that the head officials of the aforementioned countries take a strong stand against commercial whaling.
No whale populations have come even close to recovering from 200 years of commercial whaling. The cruelty associated with killing whales is extreme as there are limited ways to bring down an animal that big. Because of this, whales suffer excruciating deaths and for what reason? For centuries, meat from whales has been an important source of food and vitamins in different countries. It is understandable that back then consumption of whale meat was an important part of these peoples’ culture, but now it has become a high price restaurant business. At this day and age it is not necessary for humans to consume whales for survival.
Protect whales until this shameful and unnecessary slaughter has been stopped and whales can again roam the seas in freedom!
