How your restaurant order can save whales!

We are fortunate to have A-level student, Xavier Tobin, working with us as a volunteer with the Stop Whaling team. Here, Xavier introduces some new resources which ask visitors to whaling regions not to be tempted to eat whale meat or purchase whale products during their stay.


I am currently working with WDC (Whale and Dolphin Conservation) on a campaign to offer visitors to Iceland, Norway or Greenland simple and accessible information about the availability of whale meat and other whale products in those regions. We have produced a series of information flyers and our hope is that these will enable visitors to make an informed decision on this issue, since tourists will almost certainly either be offered whale meat in restaurants or else see whale meat and other products widely available in markets, supermarkets and shops.

You can read our Iceland flyer here

If you are travelling to any of these destinations, please have a look at the appropriate flyer before you travel. Simply by opting not to eat whale meat, you are helping to reduce demand – and thus, the incentive for the whalers to continue their cruel trade is diminished.

This simple act will help us enormously in our efforts to keep whales in the sea – rather than on a plate – allowing current visitors, as well as future generations, to enjoy seeing whales and dolphins in the wild. Recently, whilst on a whale watch trip, my cousin was moved to tears at being in the presence of a humpback whale. If you are lucky enough to have the privilege of seeing a whale in the wild, I am sure you will agree that this is an experience far more valuable to anyone than a slice of meat.
