Donate to help stop Japanese whaling

On the 12 November 2018, despite an International Court of Justice ruling and against the process of the International Whaling Commission, the Japanese fleet has set sail for Antarctica. Under their 'scientific quota' they can kill up to 333 whales.  Shockingly, in the last two years, nearly 90% of the whales that they killed were female whales and many of these were pregnant. We assume that this hunt will be no different.

Thanks to you, WDC has worked tirelessly – and successfully - over decades to keep the ban on commercial whaling in place. With your help, we will continue to work at the highest scientific and diplomatic level to pressurise decision makers like the EU. We will continue to safeguard the ban on commercial whaling and put an end to the cruel killing of these amazing creatures. But we simply can’t do it without your support.

Please make a donation today and;

  • We will continue our campaign to pressurise the EU to say ‘no’ to a free-trade agreement with Japan
  • We will campaign for a ban on the transit of whale meat through the EU
  • We will continue to work undercover to stop whale meat being sold illegally
  • We will continue to put pressure on Iceland and Norway to end their whale hunts
  • We will continue our work to help establish a new whale sanctuary in the Southern Atlantic between South America and the west coast of Africa; a protected area for whales and dolphins to live free from the dangers that humans inflict on them every day
  • We will continue to ensure the ban on commercial whaling is kept firmly in place

If you give £30 or more, as a thank you, and to keep you up-to-date, we will send you our award-winning magazine, Whale & Dolphin four times a year.

Thank you.
