The stranded whales were discovered at six o’clock in the morning as low tide was approaching on the North side of Cape Cod. Member organizations of the Cape Cod Stranding Network immediately responded to the situation. More than 100 volunteers worked for hours pouring water over the animals and covering them in wet towels to keep them cool during the near record heat. 46 of the whales were ultimately returned to the water. Nine whales died during the stranding.

Fri, 09/30/2011

Terwijl walvisvrienden op het andere halfrond lagen te slapen, kwam in het Land van de Rijzende Zon triest nieuws naar buiten. De Japanse media meldden dat het Japanse Visserijagentschap zijn walvisvloot later dit jaar opnieuw zal laten uitvaren naar het reservaat in de Zuidelijke IJszee rondom Antarctica, om er in de naam van de “wetenschap” honderden walvissen te doden.

Japan urged to abandon outdated whaling policy

Publication Date: 
Fri, 09/30/2011

Following Japanese media reports today that whaling will continue with around US$27 million in additional government security budget to protect the fleet, Patrick Ramage, Director of IFAW’s Global Whale Programme, said: “I'd bet this is whaling's last gasp. The industry is out of gas and crashing. This move is more about pride than profit, more about politics and prerogatives of the Japanese Fisheries Agency than it is about public support.”

U.S. President Barack Obama today announced diplomatic measures to be taken by the United States against Iceland in condemnation of its whaling activities.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare welcomed the move and urged the U.S. government to maintain its strong stance against Icelandic whaling. As the end of the country’s whaling season approaches, no endangered fin whales have been killed this year following earlier US diplomatic moves on the issue.
