Stop Whaling! Save Gray Whales!

The native American Makah tribe wants to slaughter gray whales on the U.S. coast for no good reason!

What's worse is the U.S. government is now prepared to allow the needless destruction of these magnificent whales!

Tell NOAA the moratorium on hunting gray whales under the Marine Mammal Protection Act must be continued!

    Very proud day to be Irish. Ireland becomes the first country in the world to legalise gay marriage by public vote. Looks like a 70% majority, with only one in ten being gay that means six in ten are not directly effected by the change but see it as their social responsibility to make things equal.

    Norway's whalers have killed more than 60 minke whales so far this year and Iceland's whalers have started killing minkes in the last week.
