Love this:
"Sea Shepherd anti-whaling ships force Japanese whalers to withdraw from Antarctic waters
Anti-whaling activists from the Sea Shepherd society are claiming victory as Japanese vessels appear to have withdrawn from Antarctic waters off the coast of Australia."

that was a few days ago. since then the whalers have turned around and are heading back to the whaling grounds even though the weather is turning bad and they'll have only a few days before the season ends. fortunately Sea Shepherd had put a tracking device on the fuel tanker so they are following.

The Sea Shepherds are very brave and committed. Whaling tactics are worse than piracy.
