Australia Seeks Japanese Whaling Ban at The Hague

Australia Seeks Japanese Whaling Ban at The Hague

Administrative Director for Sea Shepherd USA, Susan Hartland, said in their statement “Although the battle to defend whales is taking place in the Southern Hemisphere, people around the world are concerned about the ruling of this case – these are not just Australia’s whales, they are the world’s whales and we all have a vested interest in their survival and well-being. A loss in the World Court would be devastating to people worldwide who support the efforts to save the whales, and as more than 90% of the planet’s great whales have been wiped out, we need to fight hard to protect the remaining ones from the same fate.”
