Please Demand the Australian Government act against illegal whaling by the Japanese Government in the Antarctic.
Just before the 2013 Federal election Liberal MP and Australian Environment Minister, Greg Hunt made this promise “The Government should stop turning a blind eye to whaling in our waters and should have a Customs vessel in the Southern Ocean. If elected, we will despatch a vessel, to provide a clear signal that the Australian people don’t support whaling and to provide an independent monitoring and safety role. The Government simply has to stand up for Australian waters and do the right thing by the environment, no excuses.”
Sea Shepherd will be in the Southern Ocean this year patrolling for illegal activity and we should not be left alone to defend the great whales of Antarctica.
The Australian Government must send a vessel to oppose the slaughter. Please Email Minister Hunt !
