Actress Isabel Lucas is in the middle of a pretty heavy life-transition. She’s landed a major role in the upcoming Tranformers 2, is relocating from her native Australia to LA, and is assisting beau Adrian Grenier with the development of his new series Alter-Eco for Planet Green. Still, she hasn’t lost sight of her other passions — including helping in the fight to end the slaughter of whales.
Later this month, The International Whaling Commission’s 60th Annual Meeting will take place in Chile. Filming schedule permitting, Lucas is determined to attend the event and protest. “It’s an annual conference where all the people in the whaling industry gather together and talk about how many whales they’re going to be slaughtering,” Isabel explained in a recent interview with the Cairns newspaper. “We’re going with the Whaleman Foundation. I’ve already requested time off for it. We don’t sort of claim to go there and corrupt the whaling system, I just want to go and soak up information and see if there’s anything else I can physically do or just learn more and become more educated about this whole topic.”
We’ve no doubt that Hayden Panettiere may also be involved in this protest, as she is a major supporter of the Whaleman Foundations as well. Back in October, her and Lucas were both issues arrest warrants by the Japanese authorities after attempting to stop a dolphin slaughter.
