A small glimmer of hope, but that is all!! They are still going to kill 900 - 1000 Whales. The Sea Shepherd is our only hope. Capatin Watson and his courages crew will, I hope stop them in their tracks. Support them. Here is their website, They are in the south pacific, the only ones with the whalers, Go Captain sink their ships. where is Greenpeace and Governments???

I hope the Japanese stick to this pledge but somehow I don't think they will, they will massacre any whales that they come across, another thing that alarms me is that this is supposed to be for scientific research? How can killing 1000 whales(and this is just the figure they tell the rest of the world) be scientific research, surely this should be enough research to last for 10 years(not annually). This garbage about scientific research is obvious to anyone is just a way of them slaughtering them for commercial gain. It is high time the rest of the world stood up to this whaling instead of just turning a blind eye to it.
