Commercial Whaling Comeback?

Nathan driving the Billy G in the Southern Ocean

Just a few months ago, I wrote to you from onboard the Greenpeace ship Esperanza in the Southern Ocean. I spent two months driving an inflatable boat (better known as the Billy G) between the harpoons of Japanese whalers and whales. I witnessed some of the most horrific and painful deaths you could imagine, and I will never forget what I saw.

In just over three weeks, the next International Whaling Commission meeting will take place, and the fate of the world’s whales will rest in the hands of a few individuals. Unfortunately, some of those hands are covered in blood money. That’s because the Japanese government has been buying votes on the Commission, and after years of political maneuvering, they may have the votes they need to take over and push to reopen commercial whaling. We need YOUR help to make sure that doesn’t happen.

TAKE ACTION Write the U.S. State Department NOW and demand intervention! On June 16, when the meeting begins, many of the votes will already be decided by the delegates attending. That’s why it’s so important that the nations who are undecided today, are influenced by YOU, and not by Japan’s financial incentives.


Another Greenpeace ship, the Arctic Sunrise, will be in St. Kitts to witness the events of this meeting. My friend, Ocean Campaigner Buffy Baumann, will be onboard. You’ll be hearing from her soon, and she will keep you posted during the week-long meeting.

The images of the whales I saw during my time on the Esperanza are burned into my heart and mind. Please, don’t let our efforts be in vain. Take Action now, and follow this story as it develops over the coming weeks. We’ll need your help again, and I hope you’ll be there for us and for the whales.

Your friend,
