Whaling Transparency petition calls for release of fin whaling footage
21. March 2023
After Hard To Port’s disturbing revelations of the mistreatment of fin whales during the 2022 whaling season in Iceland, the Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries responded with a revision of the regulations on whaling. The video documentation of all fin whale hunts became mandatory in August 2022.
With our new project ‘Whaling Transparency’ we are asking for the release of this footage.
Joined and supported by the talented, Hamburg-based illustrator Sarah Heuzeroth, we will highlight some of the most disturbing aspects about these hunts in a short series of illustrations.
We kindly ask you to participate in this petition letter to Iceland’s current Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries by adding your name to the list of signatories who demand full transparency about the treatment of whales.
