Japanese Whaling Fleet Bound for International Whale Sanctuary
“Japan’s attempt to dress up its commercial whaling as science is an insult to modern science, said Dr. Joth Singh, IFAW Director of Wildlife and Habitat. “It’s time for the Japanese Government to respect the rest of the world,” said Dr. Singh. It’s time to stop whaling.”
Forty-one IWC resolutions criticizing Japan’s whaling have been passed by
majority vote over the past 18 years including this year’s meeting held in
Ulsan, Korea last June.
“Diplomacy has apparently failed,” said Darren Kindleysides, IFAW Marine Campaigner. “The international community must take immediate action to stop the mass killing of these magnificent creatures in the name of science.”
