ABSTRACT
The article discusses the whaling conflict between Japan and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The academic of the University of Southern Queensland said that the militant approach of the Sea Shepherd activists was threatening efforts to exert greater control over Japan's scientific whaling via the International Whaling Commission (IWC). The author argues that whaling is part of Japanese tradition that dates back to AD 200 and should be respected as such.
