Conservation Efforts Stops The Sale Of Endangered Whale Dog Treats

Following a conservation campaign from The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI), Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) and the Iruka & Kujira [Dolphin & Whale] Action Network (IKAN), Michinoku Farm, a Tokyo-based company, stopped selling their “low calorie, low fat, high protein” snack made from North Atlantic fin whales.
