Goal: 15,000 Progress: 11,219
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

It wasn't all that long ago that online retail giant Amazon was in hot water for its sale of whale products from Japan. Now, Yahoo! is under fire for doing the exact same thing.

Yahoo! Japan features products like whale jerky, bacon, and canned whale meat from endangered whale species. Yahoo! has banned the sale of endangered animal products from its other sites, but continues to profit from the sale of whale commodities on its Japanese site. Many of the products come from species of whales that are protected by the International Whaling Commission — regulations that Yahoo! is blatantly shirking.

As one of the Internet's most prominent corporations, Yahoo! should know better than to sell products that are harmful to any animal species. Tell Yahoo!'s CEO Ross Levinsohn to obey the international moratorium and to stop selling endangered animal products immediately.

Dear Ross Levinsohn:

I was really disappointed to learn that one of the most trusted online web portals is engaging in selling endangered animal products.

I recently discovered that Yahoo!'s Japan site is selling all kinds of products from endangered whales, including jerky, bacon, and canned whale meat. Despite the fact that there is a moratorium on commercial whaling set forth by the International Whaling Commission, Yahoo! continues to act above the law and sell these products for its own profit.

Amazon recently faced sharp public criticism for doing the exact same thing; Amazon quickly pulled these products and no longer offers them.

Yahoo! needs to do the same. Please discontinue the sale of illegal whale products on your site.

Jul 26, 2014 (Name not displayed) I will never use Yahoo until they stop selling these products and I will tell my friends about this shame.
Jul 26, 2014 Fran Bryerton By promoting the sale of these endangered animal parts you are supporting their slaughter. Stop letting them advertise and show you do not wish to assist in promoting their slaughter. You are breaking the law by doing this. . Take all of their ads off.
Jul 26, 2014 katie kleinschmidt Why on earth would a website need to sell products from endangered animals? Don't we have enough animal that are exploited for unnecessary products already? Our incredibly irresponsible and inhumane use of animals in this world is disgusting!
