To say that the Sea Shepherd is a terrorist organization is a massive stretch. They attempt to block harpoons and get in the way of whaling operations. It is the whalers who respond by shooting harpoons and rifles at them and ramming and sinking their boats. So, who is the one using threats and intimidation here?

They seem to think that whales are more intelligent than other animal and base their decission that all whales should be protected on feelings rather than facts.
Endangered whale species should be protected, as should any other endangered wildlife. But the species who are not endangered should be regulated.
In Norway whales eat 2/3 as much fish as the entire fishing fleet and there are alot of them. (Not all whales eat only krill, that would be the bluewhale).
So all logic says we should regulate, so we get maximum resources of both whale and fish.
And to the individual here who came with the fantastic comment that whales are smarter than humans..... Well, maybe a tad smarter than you, the bluewhales brain is the size of a walnut..... That would be just a bit smaller than a pigs.
Yeah, and they taste great too
