Sami Lukis Talks Whaling
What made you become an ambassador for the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA)?
Posted by Editor
WSPA contacted me because they know i'm passionate about animal rights and welfare. When they told me about the campaign, and educated me about the issue, I jumped at the opportunity to become an ambassador.
How are you now doing your part?
By letting people know that there is no humane way to kill a whale, and encouraging as many people as possible to go to www.givewhalesavoice.com.au ... and show their support for this campaign.
What can the everyday person do to support the cause?
Go to www.givewhalesavoice.com.au and record your voice. With the generous support of Optus, we'll put all of the voices in a speech and present it at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in Morocco in June, supporting our Government's proposal to phase out all whaling. Our voices will help the government get the message across and show that Australians are still passionate about ending whaling. This is the most direct way to take our feelings on whaling to those people who are voting on the future of whales.
Are WSPA making a difference? What’s the good news?
WSPA wants us to recognise that the whaling debate is not just about numbers. They're bringing attention to the inhumanity of the slaughter of whales. The fact is, there is no humane way to kill a whale at sea. These beautiful animals are suffering. And any whale killed is one too many. Through WSPA's new partnership with Optus to Give Whales a Voice, we need to show the IWC how strongly Australians feel about whaling.
