The annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) begins Monday. As you know, this is a critical year for whales. A compromise deal is on the table that, if passed, will re-open commercial whaling for the next decade. This will strike a serious blow against whales by undoing the steps taken over the last 25 years to protect them.
You can still make a difference and help the whales! Please urge your country's IWC commissioner to protect whales, not whaling. We need to stand together for these majestic creatures.
Our team is already on the ground in Morocco, meeting with commissioners and making the case for conservation, not killing. We'll be tweeting from the meeting -- live -- so you can follow the latest news as it happens. You'll also find daily dispatches on our website, letting you know of any key outcomes from each day's deliberation.
The fate of the world's whales is uncertain, but we still have time to influence decision-makers. With your action and support, we will have an impact.
Thank you for all that you do to help animals.
