2010-2011 Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign
7th expedition to oppose the illegal activities of the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean
During the past six campaigns, we have saved the lives of over 1900 whales and exposed illegal Japanese whaling activities to the entire world. Last season, we were able to save more whales than the Japanese whalers were able to kill.
