    Sea Shepherd celebrates Japan will cease whaling around Antarctica

    Marine conservationists Sea Shepherd “delighted to see the end of whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary”, said captain Paul Watson in a statement.

    Marine conservationists Sea Shepherd are claiming Japan's decision to abandon whaling around Antarctica as a victory, though their battle will go on with the Asian nation moving to resume hunting elsewhere. On Boxing Day, Japan announced it was leaving the International Whaling Commission so it could resume commercial hunting of the marine mammals in their territorial waters.
