Whales Weep Not!!

We've done it!

From: Sea Shepherd

"It’s official – the Japanese whaling fleet has called it quits in the Southern Ocean, at least for this season. And if they return next season, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society will be ready to resume their efforts to obstruct and disable illegal Japanese whaling operations.

“The Nisshin Maru made a significant course change immediately after the Japanese government made it official that the whaling fleet has been recalled,” said Captain Alex Cornelissen from the Bob Barker. “She looks like she’s going home!”

The Sea Shepherd ship Bob Barker has been tailing the Japanese Nisshin Maru factory ship since February 9th making it impossible for the whalers to continue their illegal whaling operations.

“I have a crew of 88 very happy people from 23 different nations including Japan and they are absolutely thrilled that the whalers are heading home and the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary is now indeed a real sanctuary,” said Captain Paul Watson."

Thank you Sea Shepherds for protecting and defending our whales in the southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.

I'll never forget the first time I saw two Minke Whales being harpooned in the southern ocean.
It was like, something inside me just...snapped.
The horror of the scene hit me like a poison dart in the chest.
I didn't know stuff like this still happened.
I was pretty much speechless. I really was.
I'd never seen anything like it.
I've prayed for and invisioned this day for so long....the day I can say the whales are free and safe and at long last, it's finally come!
Praise be to God!
