What's the problem?

Whales are still being killed across the world’s oceans, despite an international ban on commercial whaling.

Why is it happening?

The International Whaling Commission banned commercial whaling in 1986 to try to conserve species on the brink of destruction. But over 1,000 whales – including endangered whales and some populations already depleted from centuries of overhunting – are still killed every year.

Japan has continued by claiming that whales are being killed for scientific research, and Iceland exploits loopholes in the ban in order to keep slaughtering whales for profit.

Groups seek US trade sanctions against Iceland in response to escalating whaling activities | Cision Wire
