An international whaling conference voted Thursday against Japan's highly criticized plans to resume whaling in the Antarctic next year, but Japan vowed to go ahead anyway.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Sea Shepherd stands ready to defend the whales if Japan returns to once agin invade the integrity of the the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.

Sea Shepherd has been vindicated. It is now completely established that Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean is a criminal activity.

Conservationists Prepare for #Whaling as Commission Meets! #IWC #S.OceanWhaling

The International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting started on Monday amid mounting controversy over the Government of Japan’s plans to restart whaling in the Southern Ocean, according to the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS).

When the IWC meeting opened in Slovenia, it was the first meeting since the International Court of Justic...
Marian Locksley's insight:

Sea Shepherd's Operation Icefish is Officially Launched. The Bob Barker and the Sam Simon will depart in December for the Southern Ocean. The Steve Irwin will be held back in reserve in the event that Japan decides to resume their illegal whaling activities this season.

Record number of #whales set to be #slaughtered near Britain - despite global ban! #Uk pls take the lead! #Faroe

Record number of #whales set to be #slaughtered near Britain - despite global ban! #Uk pls take the lead! #Faroe | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
RECORD numbers of whales face being slaughtered on Britain's doorstep this year despite a global ban on whaling, campaigners revealed today.
Marian Locksley's insight:

"The UK can take the lead and demand the EU follow in applying sanctions to enforce a ban on the obscenely cruel and unnecessary slaughter of whales that the public demands and the whales desperately need."

 

 

Kitty Block, Vice President of Humane Society International, said: Countries like Japan, Iceland and Norway must cease undermining, and in Japan's case violating, the whaling moratorium, by killing whales for commercial gain.

"We're looking to the IWC and all whale-friendly nations to hold a firm line."

Three conservation groups last week urged the IWC and Governments to take action to force Iceland to stop commercial whaling.
