Avaaz petition handover to the Australian environment minister

The past few weeks have been incredible -- together we built the biggest whale-saving petition in history, signed by an extraordinary 1.2 million of us, and delivered it directly to key delegates at the International Whaling Commission meeting.

And we've just succeeded in beating a proposal that would have legalised commercial whale hunting!

This is an important victory for whales. But winning this battle won’t guarantee the whales’ safety yet -- Japan is already set to continue killing whales for "scientific" reasons. To win for good, we’ll need to campaign to strengthen and reform the IWC, and to mobilise a progressive public in pro-whaling countries.

We can do it, if enough of us chip in just a small amount a week. We’ve now reached 6,000 regular weekly donors -- if we get to 10,000 we can start funding campaigning in Japan and other key nations now!
