Scientists Condemn Whaling

Study contradicts Japanese whaling law; shows that whales can be studied without slaughter.

New research has proven that whales can be studied without being killed, disproving the Japanese government's claim that living whales cannot be properly studied in their natural habitats. Scientists from Australia and New Zealand reached this conclusion after completing the first of five expeditions planned to assess whether or not nonlethal whale research is as effective as lethal methods. Researchers were able to thoroughly study whale eating, living, and migration patterns, and deduced that Japanese whalers do not need to kill whales in order to conduct accurate scientific research. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd previously took a harsh stance on Japanese whaling, and supported the research team in a public statement last December.
