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!

To parties of the International Whaling Commission:
As citizens from around the world, we call on you to retain the international ban on commercial whaling as the core policy of the International Whaling Commission in its pursuit of conservation of whales.

It's happening here in Chile too. Soon the congress will vote in order to decide if they allow the hunting, this is very sad.
If the congress allows the hunting, the whales in the Patagonia will disappear.

Jean-Michel Cousteau and his non-profit organization, Ocean Futures Society, are joining in this fight to protect the whales. To voice your opinion to President Obama to keep his pre-election promise to "ensure the U.S provides leadership in enforcing wildlife protection agreements, including strengthening the international ban on commercial whaling.", follow this link: http://bit.ly/b0HHnZ

Thanks!!
