March 3rd update from the southern ocean March 05, 2008 5:58 AM

March 3 Update March 3rd Update at 2130 Hours At 2115 Hours on March 4th the Nishiin Maru did a complete 180 Degree at the position of 63 Degrees 24 Minutes South and 111 Degrees and 11 Minutes East The Japanese factory ship is now headed back to the harpoon vessels to the East. The Nishiin Maru has led Sea Shepherd on a chase of 726 nautical miles over the last 57 hours from the point when the Steve Irwin first visually identified them The behaviour of the Nishiin Maru is very strange. Nothing was accomplished by running full speed to the West. Perhaps they realized that they would not be able to shake the Steve Irwin and they have decided to return to the main body of the whaling fleet. Perhaps they will attempt to take whales. If so we will physically block their operations. Or perhaps they have decided to go home - probably not! Another day without whales killed and every day we keep them from killing is a victory for the whales. There is only two more weeks or so in the whaling season. The weather is getting nastier and the temperatures colder. We will make sure they don't kill any more whales.
