New Web Site: http://www.stopwhaling.co.nz

Please help to stop Whaling, in particular Japanese whaling. They take by far the largest numbers. How many? In 2002 they killed 5 Sperm, 39 Sei, 50 Bryde’s and 590 Minke whales. In 2004/05 they killed 780 whales in total. In 2005 they increased their planned take to 900 Minke and added 10 endangered Fin whales. From 2007 they plan to kill 50 Humpback and 50 Fin whales, another 900 Minke whales and a number of other species of whales and dolphins. Since a moratorium came into force in 1986 and 2001 they have killed a minimum & staggering 11312 Whales. Please help by going to the web site:

It contains further information and a link to the consumer’s boycott of Japanese products contained in a petition to the Japanese Prime Minister:
