International Court of Justice upholds Australia’s bid to ban Japanese whaling in Antarctica
The Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary has been declared harpoon-free, and the gentle giants who call it home will be left in peace. Australia has won an international legal battle to end the Japanese whale slaughter in these protected waters – restoring the Sanctuary as a place for these beautiful animals to exist without fear of death at the hands of hunters.
In the landmark decision, the International Court of Justice has ruled that Japan’s Antarctic whaling program is “unscientific” — and as such, has demanded an end to any further whale hunts under this program.
