By cynically exploiting a legal loophole in the whaling convention that permits scientific research on whales, Japan has slaughtered over 6,000 whales since commercial whaling was banned in 1986.

The Dall’s Porpoise Disaster
Japanese coastal fishermen kill around 20,000 dolphins, porpoises, pilot and beaked whales each year. However, since the IWC ban on whaling, one species, the Dall’s porpoise, has been the principle target of Japanese hunters.

The Faroes cruel whale slaughter
Every year, some 800 pilot whales or more are driven ashore and cruelly slaughtered in the Faroe Islands, mid-way between the Shetland Islands and Iceland. For centuries, the Faroe Islanders have hunted these whales and dolphins, driving entire schools into killing bays, where they are speared or gaffed from boats, dragged ashore and butchered with knives.
