Local MP supports calls for an end to Japan’s Antarctic whaling


Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston has shown his support for whales by signing the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s (IFAW) ‘whale board’ and backing calls for a permanent end to Japan’s Antarctic whaling.

Justin said:

“I opposes all commercial or so-called scientific whaling because it is cruel and unnecessary. In February this year, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) convened a meeting of an independent Expert Panel in Tokyo which concluded that Japan’s proposal did not demonstrate the need for whales to be killed to achieve its research objectives.

“I am pleased to support IFAW’s work to protect whales at a time when they face more threats than ever before. I believe these magnificent and intelligent animals should be protected for future generations and urge Japan to abandon its plans for further Antarctic whaling.”
