One of the few legitimate environmental causes I support (ending the barbaric practice of whaling) is coming to an end. Those who profit from the barbaric practice of butchering whales appears to have won. Sad times indeed.


www.cnn.com...




Sea Shepherd, the environmental group famous for tracking, exposing and occasionally ramming Japanese whalers, says it can no longer compete with them on the high seas.

In a statement Monday, the group's founder Paul Watson said "Japan is now employing military surveillance to watch Sea Shepherd ship movements in real time by satellite," making it nearly impossible for them to intercept them.
"We cannot compete with their military grade technology."

Japan announced new research program, under which it would kill up to 333 Antarctic minke whales each year. The country's Ministry of Fisheries said the program is necessary to study the best methods of managing minke populations.
In January, Australia said it was "deeply disappointed" by Japan's decision to keep whaling and reiterated its opposition to "all forms of commercial and so-called 'scientific' whaling."

I support the aims of the Sea Shepherd organisation, especially the protection of whales. I went off Greenpeace when they became overtly political.

This is what they said...


What we discovered is that Japan is now employing military surveillance to watch Sea Shepherd ship movements in real time by satellite and if they know where our ships are at any given moment, they can easily avoid us.


Sea Shepherd

Hopefully, it's only a matter of time before Japan stops the practice, but to note the Japanese are not the only country that hunts whales. Also to note that the environmental degradation of the oceans is a real worry, and we can look at the industrial fishing over exploitation of fish as the nail in the coffin for our seas.

Didn't think so.

They should have satellite info to track the whalers from the US gubment, haha.

Sadly the us is too busy busy harpooning nations.

Environmental pollution threatens the marine environment more than over fishing. Despite over fishing, fish stocks eventually replenish naturally, if they aren't poisoned that is.

As much as I don't agree with Japan's whaling for "research" especially when whale meat ends up on dinner plates (in the name of gastronomic research?) I never agreed with Animal Planets promoting of the Sea Shepherd and Bob Barker's overly aggressive acts on those whaling vessels.

As for Japan...it's quite shameful that they feel the need to harvest whales. Besides what type of "research" are they really doing? Sustainability?

scientific american says it's not useful

what have we learned?

It really seems like they're only lining their own pockets...

This is why they need to patrol the waters and fire on whaling ships if they do not stop. Also give the anti whalers satellite jamming technology to use against the Japanese. We can arm them but let them do the dirty work.

Hey i know lets give the sea shepard crew a arleigh burk for a ship.

Sadly it's probably because they're all going to die anyway - the whales.

The ocean is toast.
