Petition to stand against Japan's commercial whaling

Whales, the awe-inspiring gentle giants of the ocean, have captivated our hearts and minds with their elegance, intelligence, and majesty. These remarkable creatures are vital to the health of our planet's marine ecosystems and are an irreplaceable part of our world's natural heritage. Despite the International Whaling Commission's (IWC) moratorium on commercial whaling since 1986, Japan withdrew from the IWC in 2018 and resumed commercial whaling in July 2019. This decision has sparked outrage and concern globally, as it not only threatens the survival of whale populations but also disrupts the delicate balance of our oceans.


This petition seeks to implore the Japanese government to halt commercial whaling and rejoin the IWC in order to safeguard these magnificent animals. We invite individuals, governments, and organizations from every corner of the globe to stand with us in this vital mission to preserve the enchanting giants of the sea.

Whales hold a crucial position within marine ecosystems. As apex predators, they are instrumental in maintaining the balance of marine life by regulating populations of smaller species. In addition, whales contribute to the cycling of nutrients as their waste products supply essential nutrients to phytoplankton, which constitute the foundation of the marine food chain. Furthermore, by sequestering carbon, whales play a pivotal role in mitigating the effects of climate change.

Whaling is a barbaric and inhumane practice, inflicting unimaginable pain and suffering upon these sentient beings. Whales are often hunted using explosive harpoons, leading to slow and excruciating deaths. As highly intelligent and emotional creatures, they experience terror and agony, rendering the act of whaling morally unacceptable.

We, the undersigned, passionately urge the Japanese government to:

  1. Immediately and permanently cease all commercial whaling activities.
  2. Rejoin the International Whaling Commission and wholeheartedly abide by its regulations for the protection and conservation of whale populations.
  3. Champion and invest in the development of sustainable, eco-friendly industries as viable alternatives to whaling.
  4. Collaborate with international conservation organizations to safeguard and restore the health of our oceans.

We call upon individuals, governments, and organizations worldwide to join us in raising awareness and exerting diplomatic pressure on Japan to abandon commercial whaling. United, we can secure a brighter future for these enthralling giants of the sea and ensure their enchanting presence continues to grace our oceans.

Please sign and share this petition to make a tangible difference in the crusade to protect whales and preserve the health of our oceans. With your unwavering support, we can leave a lasting, positive impact on the lives of these extraordinary animals and our shared environment.
