World condemnation of Japan’s whaling has stepped up this season, with Australia now sending its own patrol boats out to stop the Japanese doing anything illegal, and Japan being forced to back down on catching Humpback Whales.
Greenpeace is of course, as always, chasing the whalers, and confronted one ship, the Nisshin Maru a few days ago.
What do you think about whaling? Is it ever acceptable, or should there be a 100% ban? I agree with the latter, but feel free to leave your comments below.
