Internationaal Strafhof: Japanse walvisvangst is illegaal en moet stoppen

Het Internationaal Strafhof in Den Haag heeft vandaag Japan verboden nog langer walvissen in de Zuidelijke IJszee te doden voor wetenschappelijk onderzoek. Het hof vindt dat Japan op een onzorgvuldige manier onderzoek doet en zich onvoldoende inspant om onderzoek naar walvissen te doen zonder ze daarbij te doden. Australië spande een rechtszaak aan omdat het land twijfelt over het wetenschappelijke argument waar Japan zich op beroept om walvissen te mogen vangen.

The Dallas Safari Club backpedal

The Dallas Safari Club (DSC) apparently is not as concerned about conservation as it is about giving a hunter the thrill of felling an endangered black rhino and hoisting it up on his wall. 

According to a Namibian newspaper, the DSC is threatening to withdraw its $350,000 donation to them if the US denies an import license for a yet-to-be-identified black rhino scheduled to be hunted and culled in the name of conservation.
