This is the footage that the Australian Government didn’t want you to see. Since 2012, Sea Shepherd has been a part of a joint fight to get the Australian Government to release rare whaling footage obtained on a 2008 Australian Customs mission to the Antarctic. Here is the footage that the Australian Government filmed with tax payers’ money, of the Japanese whaling fleet illegally whaling in Antarctica, in Australian waters. The footage was filmed as part of gathering evidence for the International Court of Justice, which found Japans whaling to be illegal.
Sea Shepherd has been relentless in their opposition to the Japanese whaling fleet, filling a void in doing the job that the majority of Australian’s want to see done. Now is the time for the Australian Government to send a vessel to oppose whaling by Japan and take Japan to the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea.
