Goal: 15,000 Progress: 12,735
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.
