According to the Washington Post, Japanese whale hunts will continue. "The talks reportedly failed over the issue of how many whales Japan could kill in the waters off Antarctica, where Japanese whalers hunt hundreds of whales each year. The compromise plan also called for a gradual phase-out of the Japanese hunt in the South Ocean Whale Sanctuary, and Japanese officials balked at that step. The Japanese government says that its whaling activity is for scientific purposes . . "
No one believes the Japanese officials. It's all about money. I encourage everyone to send that message to them. Boycott Japanese imports. Spread the word to the people in the country. Let them know what a mistake this is!
