Eine kleine japanische Walfangflotte läuft heute in Richtung Antarktis aus, um dort Walforschung zu betreiben. Nachdem der Weltgerichtshof letztes Jahr entschieden hat, dass der wissenschaftliche Walfang Japans im Südpolarmeer illegal ist, sollen diesmal keine Wale getötet werden.

IFAW, (the International Fund for Animal Welfare) is appealing for help for koalas injured in the South Australian and Victorian bushfires.

Slow-moving koalas have been the sad victims of bushfires in South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales during fierce wildfires over the past week. We expect koalas may come into the care of wildlife groups as the fire grounds are opened up to rescuers searching for injured animals.

Japan’s whaling vessels heading to Antarctic – but without their harpoons

A smaller than usual Japanese whaling fleet is due to leave port in Shimonoseki tomorrow (Thursday) to carry out research in the Antarctic - but no whales will be harpooned after the World Court ruled last year that its ‘scientific’ whaling in the Southern Ocean was illegal.

Japan’s Fisheries Agency announced that a reduced number of boats will instead head to the Antarctic to carry out sighting surveys, biopsy work and photo identification of whales led by the country’s Institute of Cetacean Research.
