Whale Wars 2008 Approaching
While the new television show about Whale Wars 2007 begins airing, final preparations for Whale Wars 2008 has been showing up in my Antartic news alert e-mails. One of the news items is about Actress Daryl Hannah joining the Sea Shepherd for the beginning of their voyage this year. Another news item is about the opponents of the Japanese whaling efforts working as seen by the fact that the Japanese quota was lowered from 850 last year to 700 this year. Also, the Japanese admit that one of the reasons for the lower quota is a declining whale meat market and that last year they only got 551 whales due to the environmentalists actions. Lastly the news that the Japanese have left to begin the whaling season.
