This is really appalling. The numbers of humpback whales are still not at a level where they can be hunted. There are only around 4000 even now.
This has nothing to do with research this is all about consumers. Even if humpback numbers were at a reasonable level, we SHOULD NOT allow this to
happen. This is cruel and barbaric and every caring compassionate person should speak out.
One of the problems is that Japan does not recognise Australia’s sovereignty over the waters of the Antarctic. This is just the excuse they need.
