Activists win

Japan has called off this year’s Antarctic whale hunt because activists have been blocking their ships. It’s not mentioned in this BBC article (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12477398), but I remember seeing on the Sea Shepherd website that they were blocking the ships from refueling, which would force them to return to Japan. Sea Shepherd is the name of the group and main boat that have been trying to stop Japanese whaling. They’re also the ones responsible for The Cove.

  1. I am sooooo glad to hear this. I didn’t know of the cancellation. Thank goodness for groups like the “Sea Shepherd” Those people are out there doing the hard work that most of us can’t stomach.
