Even though there is an international moratorium on whaling, banning all forms of whaling for everything expect a "scientific research" loophole (which Japan exploits yearly), many countries continue to hunt whales.
In fact, since the ban, the number of whales killed each year has almost doubled in the past decade!
The whole quota thing sounds overly complicated, almost creating a stock market for whales.
Last February, the Sea Shepherd, the marine conservation group that stared in Animal Planet's Whale Wars, won the battle against Japan's whaling.
Yah For Whales, boo for Animal Planet!
Now that Japan has suspended its controversial whaling operations the network has a prime time slot to fill.
So the network has ordered a spin-off!! Hooray!
Tentatively titled The Faroe Islands Project, the show has the Sea Shepherds (including Capt. Paul Watson) charting a course to the Danish Protectorate of the Faroe Islands, where there’s an annual hunt for pilot whales titled “The Grind.”
In a practice going back to the first Norse settlements on the islands, an estimated 1,000 whales are corralled by local residents into the shallow coves to be killed.
Shooting begins in July for an unspecified number of episodes and no air date is set. And with some reports that the Japanese might re-start their whaling efforts, Animal Planet is also prepared to order a fifth season of Whale Wars.
