Orcas being slaughtered

Since the beginning of the year, nearly 100 orcas have been trapped by ice in Disko bay, West Greenland, easing pickings for the local fishermen who have already killed 24 of them.

The WDCS in the UK is calling on people to help save the orcas by writing to both the Prime Minister of Denmark and Home Rule Premier of Greenland, asking them to to stop the hunt immediately.

Their addresses are:

Mr. Anders Fogh Rasmussen
Prime Minister of Denmark
Prins Jørgens Gård 11
DK-1218 Copenhagen K

Mr Jonathan Motzfeldt
Greenland Home Rule Premier
Greenland Home Rule
P.O. Box 1015
DK-3900 Nuuk
