Good news. It`s good to see and feel that we can make a difference, when forces and pressure are united, however, not always unfortunatelly!

Well there are still about a 1000 whales in danger. The Japanese Government insist that they need to do "research". The average Japanese person does not eat whale anymore. So they have stacks of whale meet stored in their warehouses that they can't even sell???? Hey the whales are here to share, they don't belong to the Japs!! Boycott Japanese products, lets keep the pressure on and show them what people power can do.
Go to the Sea shepherd group and email a note to the Japanese Government and also to the Australian Prime Minister, He promised before the election he would protect those animals, but now he is only sending and observation ship. And just so he will not annoy the Japs, he will leave the guns at home. Weak!! Just as well Captain Watson, from the Sea Shepherd has more clout! Go Captain sink their vessels!
