GOTL | Vanessa Williams-Grey (WDC) Norway and Minke Whales

Guests Off the Leash’ are short standalone audio comments and statements (‘shortcasts’) from conservationists, campaigners, charities, authors and members of our audience. If it needs to be said – say it here!

The Norwegian Government are planning to do ‘sound experiments’ on young Minke Whales captured as they move north to summer feeding grounds. This torture of whales is being done solely for the military and the oil and gas industries.

Vanessa Williams-Grey, Policy manager at WDC – that’s Whale and Dolphin Conservation of course – wrote a blog on the issue and has also given us a powerful shortcast to post here.

As well as slating the proposals – “there’s so much wrong with these experiments” – Vanessa suggests actions we can take,  and we have posted links below to a petition and an email address for Norwegian Prime-Minister Erna Solberg.
