Conservationists have fought against whaling for years. Candace Crespi, campaign director for the Oceanic Preservation Society, told The Dodo that the program is based on "bogus" science.
"This has nothing to do with tradition, and is purely about money and greed," she said. "When will Japan join the rest of the 21st century?"
Despite a decades-old international moratorium on commercial whaling, Japan, Norway and Iceland continue to kill thousands of whales every year under the guise of "scientific research" and banner of "tradition." Join us in demanding that these defiant whaling nations put an end the deadly practice once and for all.
