Japan jagt im Südpolarmeer Zwergwale

Die australische Regierung klagt vor dem Internationalen Gerichtshof gegen die japanische Regierung, weil diese trotz eines internationalen Moratoriums weiterhin Wale in der Antarktis jagt – unter dem Deckmantel der Wissenschaft.

„Wir hoffen, dass das Gericht endlich Schluss macht mit der Augenwischerei, die die japanische Regierung betreibt, indem sie ihren kommerziellen Walfang als ,wissenschaftlich‘ bezeichnet“, so Dr. Ralf Sonntag, Meeresbiologe des IFAW (Internationaler Tierschutz-Fonds).
