We know that Pierce Brosnan loves whales and we’re super excited to see that he’s taking some major steps to protect these mighty animals.
Brosnan has teamed up with The Humane Society of the United States to convince the International Whaling Commission to continue protecting whales around the world.
For the first time in 25 years, on June 21, the International Whaling Commission will meet to decide whether to effectively lift the prohibition on commercial whaling. If this happens, it will give Japan, Iceland and Norway free will to hunt whales.
In a letter, Pierce says:
“We cannot allow three nations to decide the fate of the world’s whales. In 1982, the nations of the world recognized that whales could not survive if commercial whaling continued. In 2010, when whales face even more threats than ever before — including toxic pollution, climate change, loss of habitat, ship strikes, and oil and gas exploration — how could anyone believe it’s safe to let whalers off their leash? YOU can make all the difference.”
Wanna help protect whales? Great! Simply visit the HSUS’s website and tell your country’s officials to NOT lift the ban on commercial whaling! It’s time to use that voice, people!
