World Against Whaling
World Against Whaling was created in 2007 by a user of YouTube - fred100446 - as a mean to create a central petition website that would link all the anti-whaling organisations and campaigns on one site, rather then searching each one separately. Today Fred Page from Sydney Australia is still the founder and owner of WAW.
WAW history all started on YouTube after Fred labelled one of his many videos - "World Against Whaling". After the creation of several videos, hundreds of users subscribed and YouTube was no longer viable to expand and was to restrictive for the listing all the necessary information about whaling. Therefore a 'freewebs' website was created with the title of WAW under the banner of "TOGETHER WE CAN STOP WHALING".
WAW 'freewebs' sites main purpose was just to list petitions, but it became more when people requested to join the WAW team. Since the creation of the free hosted site WAW expanded to multiple social networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace, Vimeo and Care2. WAW also partnered up with several other groups to work together and stop whaling!
