Whaling in Iceland

I don't generally use this blog to spread word about causes that are important to me.
But in this case I feel like I cannot not play my part in spreading the word.

Whales (and all animals actually)  have alway been and will always have a huge
place in my heart.  Being half Icelandic, I have had to endure many a debate with
Icelandic relatives and friends who in the past and also sometimes now, see nothing
wrong in whaling.  It has been a tradition for a very long time and I remember vividly
driving past whaling stations and seeing the results of the slaughter which I will never
 forget. I was often made to feel like some kind of Greenpeace Eco-Maniac, because I 
felt so strongly about this issue and did not hold back in getting my opinion across, 
even as a child. 

Now in 2013 it seems that Iceland may be beginning to realise that whaling has no 
place in this century.  The methods of slaughter are absolutely horrendous and it is
 heartbreaking to watch.  The suffering of these magnificent creatures could not be
worse and it absolutely has to stop.  Please please do something today which could
help put this barbaric, old fashioned, intolerable cruelty in the past.  Iceland has an
amazingly modern, civilised society that is so proud of its amazing nature.  The pride
 in their nature needs to be extended into the sea!

AND now they are even talking about a whale sanctuary! What a potential turn around!

Please go to this link or click the image and it will take you through to the petition site.

Thank you so much!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this very thought provoking post. I, too, have grown up in a culture that supports and endorses the seal hunt. Although I understand that at one time humans depended upon hunting and fishing as a means of survival, those days are gone. We now have the resources, knowledge and ecological understanding of why this is wrong on all levels. Makes my heart sad. Lisa

    Thank you for spreading word... I adore whales and I hope the day will come when they won't be killed anymore.
