The area of ocean set aside as a nature preserve could double or triple in the coming days, depending on the outcome of a meeting in Germany.

So long as it does not become the private fishing and whaling resort of Japan.

Will these governments actually protect these waters against the whale butchers of Japan or will it continue to be the sole responsibility of the courageous crews that sail for Sea Shepherd.

Fingers crossed - toes too. Hope it comes into being and share the worries of others regarding Japan and its flagrant disregard for wildlife in any form.

Noted. My browser wasn't happy with the site, but I get the gist anyway. Step forward, but not nearly enough. All countries should give up their 'rights' and the whole of Antarctica should be a conservation area. No drilling for oil or gas, no fishing, eco-tourism only.
