Ocean Odyssey and campaigners for whales around the world had reason to celebrate when Japan was ordered by the United Nation’s International Court of Justice to end to the hunting of whales in the Antarctic.

 

For years Japan justified the massacre of thousands of whales in the Southern Ocean on the grounds that it was done for scientific research, despite selling them on the commercial market. Although this landmark ruling should serve to terminate the biggest source of whale killings, there are still other smaller whaling operations that exist in nations such as Norway and Iceland. Campaigners are hopeful that this ruling will have a” domino effect on the remaining activities”
