Tails for Whales

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn supports the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) ‘Tails for Whales’ campaign. This photo art project has been launched to raise awareness of the need for greater whale protection. IFAW is encouraging people from all walks of life to be photographed making the whale tail hands symbol.


Meg said:


“I’m pleased to be helping the ‘Tails for Whales’ project. Whales face more threats today than ever before and this project sends out a positive message that we should all work to protect them. I encourage my constituents to take part by submitting their photos for inclusion.”


Robbie Marsland, Director of IFAW UK, said:


 “IFAW opposes commercial or so-called ‘scientific’ whaling because it is cruel and unnecessary. We believe these magnificent and intelligent creatures should be protected for future generations to enjoy. Support for this project demonstrates that many people feel the same.”


Whale tail images can be uploaded to the website www.tailsforwhales.org (JPEG format, minimum 1024x768pix). The aim is to collect as many of these positive images as possible on the website, particularly in the run-up to the next meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in June 2009. IFAW will urge all member countries to use their votes for whale conservation, rather than allowing any attempts to weaken or overturn the worldwide ban on commercial whaling.
