The End of Japan’s Antarctic Whaling

December 27, 2018 Uncategorized 0

December 26th, 2018, the Japanese government announced their retreat out of the Southern Ocean, bringing their infamous, so-called “scientific” whaling program to an end in Antarctica.

Over the years, Sea Shepherd led 11 campaigns against the Japanese whalers in the waters of Antarctica, saving over 6000 whales in the process, but none of these achievements would have been possible without the incredible generosity of our supporters worldwide.
