Japan Told It Must Stop Whaling
Amazing news this morningÖ
Japan has been told by a United Nations court that it there is no scientific reason for it to kill whales, and that it must stick to the rules banning commercial whaling (hunting whales for profit).
The Australian government had taken Japan to the International Court of Justice to stop what it called the "illegal" and "unnecessary slaughter" of these marine mammals.
Itís a wonderful victory for the whales, and will definitely save many lives. Well done Australia!
