Stop Whaling Campaign
Actress Emma Watson has revealed that she is firmly against eating whale meat. The Harry Potter star was speaking on the David Letterman Show in the US following her recent return from filming a new movie in Iceland alongside Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins. Unlike some other celebs visiting the country recently, like chef Gordon Ramsay, Emma refused to eat any whale, puffin or reindeer dishes on offer.
The International Whaling Commission (IWC) held its annual meeting in Panama during the first week of July. WDCS revelations that whales killed for supposed ‘desperate local needs' were being sold to tourists, helped to persuade the IWC not to give Greenland a quota to kill even more whales.
Japan, Iceland and Norway continue to kill hundreds of whales each year even though the demand for whale meat continues to fall. Find out the truth about whaling and why it is cruel and unnecessary. With your support WDCS is leading the fight to end whaling once and for all.
