Dear Friend,


White House Whale Delivery

Activists deliver over a million messages to the White House on Thursday, June 3rd.

Whales needed help and you jumped into action to save them.


While the Obama Administration supports a deal that would re-open commercial whaling for the first time in over two decades, activists, like you, spoke up for the whales by saying, “enough is enough!”

And, our collective voices are being heard!

On Thursday, I had the pleasure of delivering your messages to the White House.

Your voice joined over a million others in speaking on behalf of whales all around the world. Thank you.

Activists and supporters showed their love for whales by creating origami whales, participating in our photo contest,

*** taking action online, tweeting and spreading the word on Facebook.

Commercial whaling is cruel and unacceptable.


That’s why this proposed deal to re-open commercial whaling is so outrageous.


In just a few weeks, the International Whaling Commission will gather in Morocco to vote on changes to the international ban on commercial whaling.

The Obama Administration will be at these negotiations knowing that millions of Americans back home are rooting for the whales and not the whalers! Keep your fingers (and fins) crossed that whales will be spared from the path of deadly harpoons.

For the whales,

P.S. I’ll be in Morocco at the IWC meeting and will keep you up to date on what’s going on…so stay tuned. And there’s still time to get messages to the President before the IWC. If you haven’t already, please take a minute to ask your friends and family to take action by copying the following message into an email:


Dear Friend,

In an altogether shocking move, President Obama's delegation to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) has decided to back a plan that would legalize commercial whaling — including in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary — for the first time since the international ban was passed over 20 years ago.

We only have until the start of the IWC meetings in a few weeks to convince the President that this plan is a horrible idea.


Join me and tell Obama to keep his promise, save the whales.










The International Whaling Commission has just unveiled a proposal to legalize commercial whale hunting for the first time in 24 years.

Now, countries are deciding whether to support it -- or push back. Already, New Zealand's Foreign Minister has described some provisions as "unacceptable," "inflammatory," and "offensive."

A massive global outcry is needed now, as other key countries choose how to react. Avaaz will deliver this petition to the Commission delegates each time it adds another 100,000 signatures -- sign below and spread the word!
