Quotes

According to the Global Conservation Group's Vice President of Campaigns, Tim Green, "Whaling is bad because it is an expensive undertaking and it risks running whales to extinction. We simply cannot afford to run such a significant and valuable part of our ecosystem into extinction"
Whales were hunted in large numbers till 1986 when the International Whaling Commission banned whaling. "The decline in great whale numbers, estimated to be at least 66 percent and perhaps as high as 90 percent, has likely altered the structure and function of the oceans" said Joe Roman from the University of Vermont in the US
"The dolphins' habitat would be degraded as a result of noise and pollution and there's a risk they'd be displaced into areas where they have no protection" Hughes said
"This is another yet example of National sacrificing the last remaining 55 Maui’s dolphins in order to give the mining industry a leg-up, and showing a total disregard for the things New Zealanders care about" said Green Party oceans spokesperson Gareth Hughes
