5 Ways You Can Help Protect Whales

Commercial whaling is both cruel and unnecessary. Here are five things you can do right now to help save whales from whaling and the increasing threats from ocean noise, ship strikes, entanglement in fishing gear and climate change.

1. End the Raw Deal for Whales

Write a letter to True World Foods, the premier sushi quality seafood distributor in the US, asking them to persuade its partner Kyokuyo Co. Ltd. to permanently cease the production, distribution and sale of all whale products.

2. Sign Up to Receive Mobile Text Alerts

Be the first to learn about breaking whale news when you join IFAW’s free mobile whale network. When IFAW needs your help to save whales we’ll let you know by sending an action alert directly to your mobile phone.

3. Host a House Party for Whales

Encourage others to join you in becoming an active member in the global campaign to end whaling by hosting a party to view the unique film “What to Do About Whales”.

4. Tell Others to Help Protect Whales

It only takes a few seconds to spread the word about the cruelty of whaling and our efforts to end it, yet the impact on the campaign is enormous. Please invite your friends, family, and colleagues to help save the whales.

5. Promote StopWhaling.org

Let others know about our campaign to end whaling by hosting our free whale banners on your site or by telling others about IFAW through MySpace.
