Greenpeace want you to help them put an end to whaling in the Southern Ocean. Go to their new web site at http://whales.greenpeace.org/global where you can get inspired by other people’s ideas, rate them, improve them and add your own.

The blue whales of the Antarctic are at less than 1 percent of their original abundance, despite 40 years of complete protection. Some populations of whales are recovering but some are not. Only one population, the East Pacific grey whale, is thought to have recovered to its original abundance, but the closely related West Pacific grey whale population is the most endangered in the world. It hovers on the edge of extinction with just over 100 remaining.
