The U.S. Department of the Interior officially certified on February 6, 2014 that under the Pelly Amendment to the Fisherman’s Protective Act of 1967, Iceland’s ongoing international trade in whale meat and products diminishes the effectiveness of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

Please urge President Obama to protect whales and enforce sanctions on Iceland!

The U.S. Department of the Interior officially certified on February 6, 2014 that under the Pelly Amendment to the Fisherman’s Protective Act of 1967, Iceland’s ongoing international trade in whale meat and products diminishes the effectiveness of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

It is now up to you within 60 days of the certification to help whales and end this inhumane, unnecessary, and unsustainable practice of whale slaughter. We are calling on you to impose economic sanctions against Iceland due to its continued whaling activities in defiance of a ban on international commercial trade of whale productions.

All available evidence tells us there is no way to hunt and kill whales at sea without causing acute suffering. Please help to end the slaughter of whales and stem the tide of trade in endangered wildlife!

wails of whales

This is where we always swam
Before big ships filled with little man
Before sharp things thrown in our way
We swam, we lived, we ate, we played.
