Massive victory for whales & the world!

Humpback Whale Documentation (Kingdom of Tonga: 2003-2006)
When you share petition after petition after petition for years, you hope to one day hear the wonderful news that the change you’ve been waiting and wishing for has finally arrived. Well, today was that marvelous day! I woke up to this lovely news on my Facebook newsfeed this morning and have seen it everywhere online all day. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that Japan’s “scientific” whaling is illegal and must end! It was finally determined that Japan’s whale hunt doesn’t meet the scientific whaling regulations, something that has been known by many for years. To find out more details, you can go to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)’s website here.

This is the best environmental/animal welfare news I’ve ever heard! I hope it comes to an end immediately and stays permanent…and that other whaling countries get the same ruling asap! This news was too amazing not to share with all of you… what great news!
