Stop Barbaric Annual Slaughter of Pilot Whales

Target: Aksel V. Johannesen, Prime Minister of the Faroe Islands

Goal: Ban whaling in the Faroe Islands.

Every summer, entire pods of pilot whales are killed on the shores of the Faroe Islands. The animals pass by the islands on an annual migration, but they do not know that local fishermen wait in the waters to push them close to the shore, where they are speared with metal hooks and dragged onto the beach. This annual hunt, referred to locally as the grindadrap, is heavily attended by local spectators who often help to drag the injured whales to the beaches. While locals do eat the whale meat, an anti-hunting campaign called Sea Shepherd claims that so many whales are killed that some meat is left on the beaches to rot.

This is all legal, despite whaling being outlawed in Denmark, as the Faroe Islands have independent laws from the mainland. Sign this petition to urge Aksel V. Johannesen, the Prime Minister of the Faroe Islands, to pass laws that protect the migrating pilot whales.


Dear Prime Minister Johannesen,

Every year, thousands of pilot whales are pushed to shore and killed on the beaches of the Faroe Islands. These are innocent animals that pass in their annual migration patterns. The violent slaughter of whales has become a spectator-attended event that is antiquated as a means of procuring meat.

Mainland Denmark has already outlawed whaling. Please follow their example and pass laws that will ban the killing of whales swimming off the shores of the Faroe Islands.
