— In , after three decades at the center of the anti-whaling movement, Japan withdrew from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and resumed commercial whaling in its. But the anti-whaling movement knew that closing down the whaling station in Albany was no fait accompli. The book has received plaudits from best-selling West Australian novelist Tim Winton. New documentary Defend, Conserve, Protect follows the conservation organisation’s anti-whaling missions and plays out like a war movie on the high seas. In treaty negotiations Makah leaders stressed the importance of securing their access to marine hunting and fishing. Makah Chief Klachote told Governor Stevens that “he thought he ought to have the right to fish and to take whales and get food where he liked,” as University of Washington Professor Charlotte Cote (Nuu-chah-nulth) describes in her book Spirits of Our Whaling .
Anti Whaling Society (AWS) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to the end of whaling everywhere on Planet Earth. AWS got its name from the Anti Slavery Society founded in by William Wilberforce and Thomas Clarkson to fight for the abolition of slavery in the British Empire which was achieved ten years later by the Slavery Abolition Act of A . Greenpeace was formed in the early s and to this day continues to play a major role in leading the movement for environmental change. One of Greenpeace’s first campaigns was the campaign to stop whaling, which began in The two biggest leaders of Greenpeace’s anti-whaling campaign were Paul and Linda Spong, a married couple.

After over a decade of committed campaigning the ‘Save the Whales’ movement triumphed when the IWC voted in for a moratorium (ban) commercial whaling. That ban came into force in and is one of the defining conservation successes of the last hundred years; marking the virtual end of large-scale whaling around the world.
The IWC was set up by whaling companies in under the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling (“History and Purpose” ). This commission was set up to make whaling a practice that could be sustainable (“History and Purpose”). The initial movement of anti-whaling groups followed similar ideals as the IWC. Ramage said that Japanese are neither pro- or anti-whaling, but that “they are anti-anti-whaling,” pointing to a survey conducted by IFAW and Greenpeace in After the s, international environmental protection groups such as Greenpeace deployed large-scale anti-whaling campaigns. Their activities caused many countries — including European nations, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Central and South American nations — to declare the protection of whales to be national policy. Australia and other anti-whaling nations are set for a showdown with Japan amid reports it will formally seek to lift a ban on commercial whaling .
