What you can do to help save the Eastern Australian Humpbacks
Background on Japan's so-called 'Scientific Whaling'Although Japan backed-off killing Eastern Australian humpbacks in Antarctica this year the future course they will take is not clear. Consequently it is important that the Australian Government is urged to persist with its strong stance against any form commercial whaling and to move forward with the proposed legal action.
The International Whaling Commission is deadlocked and being abused by Japan, so legal action is a final recourse to end illegal, unregulated and unnecessary Japanese Whaling and to get 'whales & dolphins' back on the IWC agenda.
Japan, supported by a block of 27 'friendly' votes, achieved a simple majority for the first time in 20 years at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting in the Carribean in 2006.
Using fisheries investment in small countries to obtain their support at the IWC has been called 'systematic corruption' of global fisheries policy by emminient scientist Dr Sidney Holt.
The recent report released by UNEP/IUCN on the state of the world's fisheries reveals the devastating and deep trouble with global fisheries and the oceans. However the IWC's agenda should be 'whales & dolphins' not 'fisheries'.
