Japan will restart whale hunting in July

  • Japan announced that they will restart commercial whaling, as officials say that eating whales is a part of their culture. International Whaling Commission (IWC) had banned whale hunting in 1986, when it was leading to whale extinction. Japan, member of the organization since 1951, declared that it will also withdraw from the organization. The move is likely to attract criticism from international conservationists.
