Update: Londoners learn how to rescue a whale. Though I saw Terry Nutkins on the television who said that if anything is going to harm the whale it is the number of boats following it.
If you really want to help ‘save the whale’ you could do worse than looking at the Save the Whales – 10 Ways You Can Help Marine Life Every Day page.
In fact, did you know that Norway will kill 1,052 whales in 2006 (30% more than last year), whilst Japan will kill nearly that number. All in the name of ‘research’ apparently. Greenpeace has been attempt to disrupt Japanese whaling but has had to pull out owing to lack of resources.
As far as I can understand from various internet searches Japan wants to resume commercial whaling. Japans own foreign policy website attempts to justify it’s ‘research’ but what they say seems to be entirely at odds with what they are doing.
