For the first time in almost three decades, since a 2014 UN court order ban, Japan's whaling ships have returned from the Antarctic continent without catch on board. For years, Japan (along with Norway and Iceland) has hunted whales under the guise of scientific exploration but finally it looks like worldwide outrage as well as new laws such as the International Court of Justice forbidding that the ships be equipped with harpoons, are beginning to make a difference. Stay aware and have your say.
