Help End Whaling Today !
If you wish to help protect whales from slaughter today, you may wish to support the Sea Shepherd foundation.
Without endangering any human life, sea shepherd and their ships intervene and protect whales from whalers.
In over 20 years of direct action, not a single injury to a human being has occured as a result of Seashepherd activities. In contrast Japan and Norway have extinguished thousands of lives of intelligent beings in agonising and excruciatingly prolonged deaths.

Unlike Greenpeace, SeaShepherd does more than just video whales being slaughtered, it stops whales being slaughtered.
If you feel strongly you may also wish to boycot products from whaling nations.
