|Iceland is killing whales . . .
In October 2006, after 20 years of compliance, Iceland began to violate the International Whaling
Commission's global moratorium on whaling and gave only a one-day notice before killing a whale.
Iceland has issued themselves a quota of 9 endangered fin whales and 30 piked (Minke) whales to brutally slaughter before August 31, 2007 - in addition to their bogus lethal "scientific research" program which targets another 39 piked whales.
Sea Shepherd is Going to Intervene
Sea Shepherd, the Whales' Navy, is the only organization whose mission is to uphold and enforce international conservation regulations on the high seas. We are sending our ship the Farley Mowat and a crew of volunteers to create an international incident over Iceland's refusal to comply with global protection regulations.
We are calling this campaign Operation Ragnarök. This is an old Nordic word that means "doom or destruction of the powers." We intend to take our intervention to the land of the Norse - straight to the coast of Iceland - for a confrontation with the outlaw Icelandic whaling operations.
