Japanese Ships Set Sea For Cold-Blooded Whale Hunt

(ANIMAL NEWS/JAPANESE WHALING) JAPAN -- After a one-year hiatus, Japan has distributed its first whaling fleet to the Antarctic in search of over 300 minke whales. Despite a court ruling and strong worldwide opposition, four vessels left the port of Shimonoseki for the Southern Ocean today, and are set to return in March 2016. Although the International Court of Justice issued a stop order on the JARPA II research program last March, Japan is still able to hunt whales by taking advantage of a loophope in a law that allows killing mammals for scientific research. After the ruling, Japan announced a new research program, NEWREP-A, which is slated to kill 4,000 minke whales over the course of 12 years. What's more, whale meat is widely available for consumption throughout Japan. Now, conservation group Sea Shepherd is calling on the Australian government to defend its waters, and plans to intervene as necessary to stop these poachers in their tracks. Read on to learn more about Japanese "research" and its long-term effects on whale populations. -- Global Animal
