Whales

Read this - it explains everything. I can't bare to explain, it is far to upsetting.

Hi Anna

It's a difficult one. Iceland also relies on Whale watching for tourism, I have thought about visiting there before now for that purpose. But historically, hunting Whales is part of Iceland's (and Norway's) culture.

On the other hand, at least the Icelanders are being honest about it. Unlike the Japanese, who they say are still whaling for research purposes. If that's the case, then why does Whale meat still turn up in the Sushi bars of Tokyo?

it's ridiculous, they make a lot more money from whale watching but there are still those people that would rather slaughter them.
