Whaling is cruel, unnecessary and unsustainable. Help us to stop this bloody whaling – the time to act is now.

The whaling nations believe that people have stopped caring about whales – show them this isn’t true.  Add your voice and ensure that they get the message loud and clear – stop bloody whaling!

35 species of migratory sharks and rays are considered Threatened by the World Conservation Union. The rapid decline in shark numbers across the world is well documented and the reasons for it, the burgeoning demand by the increasingly affluent Chinese for shark fins, is also clear. How to stop that decline is a much harder and many different approaches to this are taken.

The Shark Trust, based in the UK, has gained enormous respect in scientific and political circles, taking a stance calling for a sustainable shark fishery. This pragmatic approach has allowed them to work with both fishing bodies and governments and they have had considerable influence in promoting and framing legislation to limit the impact of commercial shark fishing and to try to put an end to finning, which is where the shark has its fins cut off while still alive.

Fishermen in Japan kill some 20-thousand dolphins a year. Reports of these dreadful events have shocked the world. The public has responded with an avalanche of protest. We must continue to work on the ground in Japan.

Keeping highly intelligent animals such as dolphins in captivity is extremely cruel. Many dolphins die in the capture process.  The dolphins who are captured are taken from their families.  They are condemned to spend the rest of their lives in cement tanks, often in unsanitary conditions, forced to perform tricks for food.
