Quotes

"For this reason they might want to look at the stomach content of the whale: what they eat and how much they eat."
"Norway has systematically increased its cruel slaughter of whales in recent years,” said Susan Millward, AWI executive director. "The United States recently imposed diplomatic measures against Iceland for its whaling and trade in whale products, and we believe that these same penalties should be imposed on Norway. We call on the United States and other governments to act decisively to bring international tradetrade in whale products to an immediate halt.”"
"The Government needs to do the right thing, and protect the dolphins throughout their habitat. The recent capture of the dolphin in the BayBay of Plenty confirms both a greater range and therefore greater risk to the dolphins so more action is needed."
"The madness of the whaling – hunting species after species to the verge of extinction – is the same model now being used in modern fishing today. Protecting the whales – not just from hunting but the many other daily threats they face - would be a signal that governments are serious about all ocean protection" so says a statement on the Greenpeace website, and almost since its inception in the 1970s, the NGO has campaigned against whaling
