2010-2011 Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign
7th expedition to oppose the illegal activities of the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean
During the past six campaigns, we have saved the lives of over 1900 whales and exposed illegal Japanese whaling activities to the entire world. Last season, we were able to save more whales than the Japanese whalers were able to kill. Five hundred and twenty-eight (528) whales are alive and swimming in the sea because you enabled us to intervene by supporting our ships and crews.
We hope it will be our last season because we put an end to this annual atrocity. Please be part of this monumental effort to protect these precious, sentient whales – we need you!
