Slaughter of the Innocent
Slaughter of the Innocent

Take Action! July 7, 2008 - TWO MAKAHS TO SERVE TIME FOR ILLEGALLY SLAUGHTERING A GRAY WHALE. A federal judge last Monday decided to lock up two Makah tribal members for illegally killing a gray whale last September. While three others received two years probation. The whalers doing time are Andy Noel and Wayne Johnson. The two were charged for violating the Marine Mammal Protection Act. The judge said of the two, "they decided to take the law into their own hands. They defied their own community and the laws of this country, which they well know". The judge also charged Johnson of "thumbing his nose at the court". He then ordered that the two be taken into custody immediately. For the full story visit The Seattle Times.

The disturbing proof of the cruel slaughter of minke whales in the southern Ocean has just been released revealing photos of a mother and her less than 1 year old baby being winched aboard a Japanese whaler, Yushin Maru.

Take Action! SEPTEMBER 28, 2007 - WHALING SECRETS YOUR NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW! Japan is killing protected whales in a marine mammal sanctuary, selling illegal whale meat and buying pro-whaling votes in an international decision-making body. More than 25,000 whales have been hunted and killed since the ban on whaling was imposed. Even more shocking, this unsanctioned killing is happening in the protected waters of Antarctica’s Southern Ocean Marine Sanctuary, defying international law. How is this possible?

Gray Whale Slaughter

- Illegally Slaughtered Gray Whale -

Take Action! SEPTEMBER 23, 2007 - MAKAH MUST BE DENIED PERMIT TO KILL ANY GRAY WHALES! Obviously the Makah Tribal Council has absolutely no control over their selected whalers. Killing this whale not only violated international law and U.S. federal law - they violated the laws of the Makah Nation. They knew they would never be permitted to kill a resident whale in the Straits of Juan de Fuca, a National Marine Sanctuary. They stalked a docile feeding whale. This was an extraordinarily cruel act! NOAA is investigating the unauthorized killing to determine how to proceed with processing the tribes MMPA waiver request. PLEASE TAKE ACTION TODAY! You can get all the info you need to make your phone calls and letters from SeaShepherd.

Take Action! SEPTEMBER 10, 2007 - MAKAH ILLEGALLY KILL GRAY WHALE! On September 8, a gray whale was harpooned then shot with a .50 caliber rifle by five members of the Makah Nation of Neah Bay, Washington. According to the U.S. Coast Guard the whale suffered for 12 AGONINIZING hours before it finally died. Clearly this was an illegal hunt. At face value this blatant slaughter proves the the Makah will never follow regulations that pertain to subsistance whale kills. For the full story visit THE SEATTLE PI.

Take Action! DECEMBER 29, 2006 - **RUSSIAN ORCA CAPTURES FOR 2007** As the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, approves a quota of eight orcas (killer whales) for capture in Russian waters in 2007, WDCS is at least pleased to report that the 2006 season for live orca captures in Russian waters has ended without a single animal being caught. As winter arrives, the window of opportunity for capture teams seeking wild orcas to sell to aquariums and marine parks has closed. Please visit WDCS for the full story.

Take Action! OCTOBER 23, 2006 - WHALING SECRETS YOUR'E NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW! “If we can imagine a horse having two or three explosive spearin the streets of London while its blood pours into the gutter, we shall have an idea of the method of killing whales. The gunners themselves admit that if whales could scream, the industry would stop for nobody would be able to stand it.” Japanese whaling is not about science at all .. it is simply whaling in disguise. Please visit WHALES IN DANGER. to read the brutal truth.

Take Action! LUNA HAS DIED. At 9:30 this morning Luna - the lone orca from L-pod who has been in Nootka Sound since July of 2001 - was killed after an unfortunate interaction with a large tugboat. This little whale was known around the world and, since his arrival in the Sound, his fate has been the source of much controversy. Even though people had very strong opinions with regards to what should be done with Luna, this is truly a tragic ending and one that very few people would have wanted to see happen. My opinion is we DO have some folks to blame. I can't help but think that taking Luna home to his natural waters and family - was the right thing to do. He would have been much safer not to mention happier. As it was - he was NEVER TO GO HOME. Ya know, I live in Oklahoma and have never seen an orca in the wild, much less Luna. Luna pulled my heart strings state by state. Thank you Luna for your short life on this earth. Your young life leaves a legacy unlike any other.

In October the Makah Tribe of Washington State will be the subject of three public hearings. Since the Makah murdered a young whale in May, 1999, their whaling activities were shut down.

Take Action JULY 9, 2005 - **GRAY WHALE NURSERY CAMPAIGN** NRDC has launched a new campaign to safeguard the Gray Whale Nursery in Baja, Mexico by buying up the development rights to the surrounding one million acres and putting them off-limits to industry forever. Dick Russell, author of EYE OF THE WHALE, is writing about his experiences at the Laguna San Ignacio whale nursery as the NRDC Action Fund's guest blogger . Please visit the NRDC ACTION FUND to learn more.

Take Action!July 9, 2005 - GRAY WHALE NURSERY UNDER ATTACK AGAIN. Mexico's San Ignacio Lagoon is the only gray whale birthing ground left on Earth that has not been despoiled by human encroachment. Each winter, hundreds of pregnant gray whales swim 4,000 miles from the Arctic to reach this perfect lagoon nursery with its warm, tranquil waters for giving birth . . . complete sanctuary from killer orcas . . . and placid surf where one-ton newborns can hone their swimming skills for the arduous journey back to Alaska. Five years ago, one million people from around the world and stopped Mexico and the Mitsubishi Corporation from building the world's largest salt factory on the banks of this irreplaceable natural treasure. But the whales' nursery never received permanent protection. And, today, there are ominous signs that San Ignacio Lagoon may soon be threatened by plans for industrialization . . . oil and gas drilling . . . massive high-rise hotels . . . and resort marinas with ocean-bound ships.

Take Action! AUGUST 4, 2004 - ANOTHER WHALE DEATH AT MARINELAND **SLUMZOO* "NEOCIA" a 12 year old orca has died at Marineland. Actually it's the seventh death in that period of time, not counting a miscarriage by Nootka 5 in the winter of 2001/2002. Missing in the list above are five year old male Nova, born to Kiska on 1996/11/06, who died on 2001/08/20, and this year's female calf of Nootka 5, born on 2004/04/07, that died sometime this May (Marineland Ontario neither gave the cause nor the exact date of death).

Take Action! JULY 14, 2004 - **URGENT STOP DOLPHIN IMPORTS AND TRANSFERS IN MEXICO!** July 2003 Mexican authorities were subject to much international condemnation following the importation of 28 dolphins captured from the wild in the Solomon Islands. The dolphins were held at Parque Nizuc in Cancun. Shortly after their import it was reported that dolphin deaths had occurred and the facility was closed to allow investigations to be carried out. Concerns were raised due to the fact that the imported dolphins were a different species from those already held at the facility, and CITES regulations state that exotic species should not be introduced into a protected area due to the possibility of transferring any infection to the local species. It has now been proven that some of the imported animals tested positive for disease which can endanger local marine life. There have also been reports of three dolphin deaths since importation plus two calves born at Parque Nizuc which did not survive. Subsequently, fears were raised as to the legality of documentation provided relating to the captures and import. Our colleagues in Mexico now tell us that following this, the owners of the facility were instructed that none of the dolphins should be moved or transferred until the criminal judge determined the fate of the animals. DESPITE THIS the owners recently moved 15 of the animals to their new facility Playa Palancar in Cozumel. Laws have quite clearly been violated. In view of these facts, we ask on behalf of all concerned with dolphin welfare worldwide that the President intervene immediately, arrange for all of the imported dolphins to be confiscated, returned to the Solomon Islands, and released back into the wild in the waters from which they were so horrifically captured.
Please sign this PETITION and forward. We can make a difference!

Take Action! OCTOBER 2, 2003 - **RUSSIAN ORCA CAPTURES!**OUTRAGE AS FIRST ORCA IS CAPTURED IN RUSSIAN WATERS! As we are aware of the capture of whales and dolphins from the wild is a brutal procedure that wrenches individual animals from their family groups. Many die during capture. Those who deny the threat posed by captivity to the survival of individual whales need only look at the mounting death tolls from around the world. Of course the almighty dollar is the major player in the capture of these animals. Please visit WDCSfor the full story.

Take Action! JULY 26, 2003 - **SOLOMON ISLANDS UPDATE** It seems 20 dolphins have been captured and currently for sale. Local fishermen in the Solomon Islands are being paid as little as $260 to collect dolphins in the wild. So far the dolphins collected are confined in tiny pens waiting to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. This trade violates international law, and puts wildlife in both Solomon Islands and Mexico at risk. You can help by urging Mexico to revoke import permits for these dolphins and return them to the wild where they belong. To learn more and for the addresses you will need, please visit WDCS.

Take Action! FEBRUARY 26, 2003 - **LA PAZ DOLPHIN UPDATE** - Most of you know the story of the La Paz dolphins and our struggle to free them. We've pleaded with the Mexican government to intervene and release them. However, there were many behind the scenes maneuverings taking place, preventing the release of these dolphins. Mexican President Vicente Fox is planning an upcoming trip to La Paz. It IS IMPORTANT for President Fox and other Mexican government officials to understand, by the way of e-mails and faxes that we have waited in good faith for them to decide whether or not they are going to rehabilitate and release the seven surviving dolphins.

Take Action! NOVEMBER 19, 2002 - **MAKAH WHALING UPDATE** The federal appellate court hearing the Makah hunt appeal may be signaling a federal change, leaning toward preventing a future hunt, based on the grounds that the Marine Mammal Protection Act may in fact supercede any existing treaty laws under which the Makah had previously promulgated their hunt.

Two of the most inhumane captive dolphin facilities are Manati Park in the Dominican Republic and the dolphinarium in La Paz, Mexico.

The La Paz facility has been shut down, but the dolphins are still held captive in their small tanks. Your letters to the Mexican government are needed to help release these dolphins before they perish.
