Whale Wars Star Sued For Lying About Sunken Ship!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersSad SadWhales

People will do anything to keep their 15 minutes of fame…including sinking a BORROWED ship!

Paul Watson, star of Whale Wars and the founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, is being sued by Ady Gil for wrecking Gil's boat.

Back in 2010, Gil allowed Watson to borrow his vessel (also named Ady Gil) for the show, as long as they took care of it.

But the boat rammed a Japanese whaling ship and later sunk to the bottom of the ocean blue.

ALTHOUGH, Gil claims

Experts Think Making A Quota System Could Save Whales

Filed under: Business BlitzWhalesCrazzzzy

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.

Each whale will

Japan Using Tsunami Recovery Money To Fund Whaling

Filed under: Disgusting!WhalesHunting

japan-whale-killers-hutning.jpg

This is despicable.

Japan is spending 2.3 BILLION yen ($29 million) from its tsunami reconstruction budget to fund their annual whale murdering spree hunt.

They are defending their actions by saying the money is helping to fund Japan's whaling industry as a whole, including some towns along the coast that were severely affected by the tsunami.

The money is supposed to help beef up security of the fleet to ensure "stable operation."

That basically means they're worried about the Sea Shepherd.

We think its terrible that they're pulling money away from disaster victims to go out and kill whales.

Let's hope the Sea Shepherd is ready to do what's needed of them to save the whales.

Whale Wars Gets A Spin-Off

Filed under: TV NewsWhales

<em>Whale Wars</em> Gets A Spin-Off

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.
