International Community Urges Japan to End Antarctic Whaling

The international community has denounced Japan’s Antarctic whaling program for not complying with the IWC rulings and called on Tokyo to halt the hunting. Japan allegedly seeks to study whale behavior and biology, and set forth a plan last month to kill 333 minke whales over a four-month period. The European Union and 12 other nations, for their part, have grounds to believe that the annual slaughter is for commercial reasons.
