Japan's 'Scientific Whaling' has been rejected by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and a revised Japanese whaling plan has been rejected by Scientist's at the International Whaling Commission.
In blatant disregard of the Law and their Scientific Peers, Japan has again conducted 'illegal' whaling in the Antarctic Whale Santuary, killing 333 minke whales. Read Dr Trish & Wally Franklin's perspective on the Whaling issue in 'Why Think of Whales at Christmas'.
Dr Phil Clapham, in his Roger Revelle Commemorative Lecture, provides a broad perspective on the status of the Great Whales following the last devastating period of commercail whaling.
He summarises future potential threats, including climate change, and also presents their role as Eco-System Engineers contributing to the health of the Global Ocean Eco-Systems. A must read for everyone interested in Whale conservation and protection!
