For real? Has the Japanese whaling fleet been shut down?
The Japanese Fisheries Agency is saying that the whale hunt has been suspended due to the interventions of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
The 88 crew from 23 different nations on the three Sea Shepherd ships have succeeded in bringing the Japanese whaling fleet to its knees. We need to keep them there.
Every day that we prevent them from killing a whale is a victory.

If it's true then we have the brave men and women who belong to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to thank.
