日本捕鲸船无劳而返,IFAW呼吁日本永久停止残忍捕鲸业

 

        国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)敦促日本放弃其垂死的捕鲸产业。自1987年日本开始所谓的“科研捕鲸”以来,捕鲸船本次在南极水域捕鲸数量是最少的。

        去年12月,日本捕鲸船离港驶向南大洋保护区,意图捕杀近千头鲸类;包括935头小须鲸和50头长须鲸。日本渔业局(Japan’s Fisheries Agency)今天(周五)宣布本季度捕获了103头南极小须鲸,没有捕到长须鲸。

        上个季度报告的捕鲸数量是266头小须鲸和1头长须鲸。

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has welcomed the announcement last night by the International Court of Justice of hearing dates for Australia’s case against Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean.

“This case has been a long time in the making and IFAW was instrumental in its history, bringing together a series of panels of world experts in international law to look at the possibility of challenging Japanese whaling in international courts,” said Matthew Collis, IFAW’s marine campaigns manager.
