Total Signatures - 492

Sponsoring Member: Mark Ryan MP

Posting Date: 8/06/2011

Closing Date: 30/11/2011

Tabled Date: 1/12/2011

Responded By: Hon Vicky Darling MP on 20/12/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that some reports indicate that approximately 1,400 whales are hunted and killed each year and at least 7 species of giant whales are endangered and the global whale population continues to decline.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to join with the Federal Government in advocating for a total global ban on whaling and for strong international action to be taken against those countries who continue to support national whaling programs.
