Close the IWC loophole that allows the Japanese to whale sign now

We the undersigned do not support IWC claims that a return to legalised Commercial Whaling would reduce the numbers of whales being slaughtered.
Korea has said it wants to hunt if Commercial Whaling is legalised and it would not be long before other countries also decided to hunt.

We ask that instead of negotiating with whaling nations and allowing limited Commercial Whaling, Article 8, the loophole that allows Japan to hunt whales under the pretext that it is for scientific research; be repealed. There would then be no need to consider a return to Commercial Whaling. Japan has stated that it will not compromise on numbers and obviously wishes to continue using Article 8 as an excuse to hunt.

Less than one percent of the planet's whales remain. Whales are essential to the health and eco system of the oceans. Whales are therefore essential to the health of both humans and the planet.

If the IWC wishes scientific research to take place there are now non lethal means of research available. This research is so exact, DNA samples can provide all information required.

Whaling is a barbaric and outdated practice which has no place in the 21st century
