Com­mer­cial wha­ling

Vocable (Anglais) - - Le Tour Du Monde En V.o. -

At the International Wha­ling Com­mis­sion this month, Ja­pan pro­po­sed to end the ban on com­mer­cial wha­ling, es­ta­bli­shed in 1986 to pro­tect vulnerable whale po­pu­la­tions. Ja­pan’s de­le­ga­tion clai­med that stocks of some types of whale have re­co­ve­red en­ough to al­low “sus­tai­nable” hun­ting. Des­pite the cur­rent ban, Ja­pan al­rea­dy kills 333 whales a year for “scien­ti­fic re­search”.
