As we previously mentioned, Amazon.com was selling illegal whale meat through it's website, Amazon.jp.
Well due to the backlash from consumers as soon as the story broke, Amazon has now taken down all whale meat related products from the site.
These products were illegal because they came from endangered fin whales and some of the meat came from dolphins who were killed in the horrible Taiji dolphin hunt (the one that was the subject of The Cove.)
It's so amazing what the power of people and social media can do to make real change in the world.
All it took was a petition, the Humane Society International's request for people to contact Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos and a couple thousand concerned people.
Way to go everyone!!
