551 whales too many

After five months at sea, Japanese whalers returned to port with just half the whales killed that they'd hoped for-- but, as as the "pirates" from Greenpeace say, that's still 551 whales too many.

Greenpeace spent fifteen weeks disrupting the hunt of Japanese whaling ships and preventing the deaths of 484 whales. Right now, Greenpeace is focusing on getting the CEO of Canon to come out against whaling.
We think Canon cameras, the Japanese company famous for its work to promote wildlife and help endangered species – should be the first ones to endorse that concept. Please write to their CEO, Fujio Mitarai, and ask that he join the efforts to make this whaling season the last.
