Keisha Castle-Hughes, star of the 2002 movie Whale Rider — and the youngest female ever nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, has thrown her support behind the Save The Whales Campaign. Castle-Hughes, a New Zealand native, is urging her government not to support Japan’s request before the International Whaling Commission to allow commercial whaling in its waters. She said the proposal would effectively lift the IWC’s moratorium on commercial whaling, “opening the floodgates for this cruel industry to grow”.

“Many governments believe that this could act as leverage to control Japan’s so-called `scientific’ whaling,” she said. “Unfortunately, this is not the case. In fact, it could not guarantee a reduction in the number of whales killed by Japan, Norway or Iceland.”

She also expressed pride that New Zealand was one of the first countries to speak out against commercial whaling — but its current inaction is distressing and could “give the green light to this outdated and unspeakably cruel practice”.
