Why is President Obama supporting a repeal of the 1986 ban on commercial whale hunting? Before 1986, tens of thousands of whales were slaughtered each year, bringing several species (for example the North Pacific Gray Whale) to the brink of extinction. Public pressure, including the famous “Save the Whales” campaign by Greenpeace paved the way for the whaling moratorium. Inexplicably, however, President Obama has stated he favors formally lifting the moratorium on commercial whaling when the IWC meets later this month. It is time, once again, for concerned citizens to speak up and protect whales. One way to learn about the issue, in a positive, fun, and empowering way is to play the classic board game “Save the Whales”. This game won a Greenpeace certificate of recommendation. It can only be purchased through our Web site www.cooperativegames.com (unless maybe you can find a used at a garage sale!)
