Japan kills more than 1,000 whales a year in the Antarctic and also the Pacific Ocean using a loophole in an international moratorium that allows catching whales for research.
Only Norway and Iceland defy the moratorium outright.
This year, Japan is expanding the catch to include 50 humpback whales, which are celebrated for their complex songs and acrobatic displays.
The expedition also plans to kill 50 fin whales - the world's second largest animal after blue whales - as well as 850 smaller minke whales.
This is the sad news I've been watching these day. I feel so sad about those innocent whales. Humpback whales was one of the animal being marked as "in danger".Finally their populations have recovered, but cruel Japanese people are hunting them again for their "Science Research"?!
I am too mad to write about any commoms.
