Pamela Anderson joins campaign to stop whale hunting

Pamela-Anderson_23Actress Pamela Anderson has joined a campaign to help stop whale hunting.

The dedicated animal-rights activist has joined the board of directors of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in a bid to “defend ocean wildlife and habitats worldwide,” reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 48-year-old, who is hoping to fight whale hunting in Japan, said: “Japan is now headed to the Southern Ocean, where its deadly industrial whaling fleet will hunt highly intelligent and socially complex whales in their internationally recognised sanctuary, in defiance of both the International Court of Justice and the Australian Federal Court.

“If the whales are not safe from illegal whaling in the remote wilderness of their Antarctic sanctuary, where are they safe?” she added.

The former “Baywatch” star is “proud” to stand with the campaign.

“The urgent fight against the poaching of whales must continue in the courts, and I am proud to stand with Sea Shepherd on behalf of our clients, the whales,” she said.

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is particularly concerned about the slaughter of whales on the Faroe Islands and Japan’s Taiji Cove.
