freelolita Graphic new photos have emmerged that demonstrate how whaling is threatening whale-watching.

The images of an Icelandic whaling vessel dragging dead endangered fin whales to shore for processing were released today by Timothy Baker, a US whale-watching tourist.

Hoping to see protected fin whales in their natural environment, Baker and others in his party were instead confronted by the grim spectacle of the Hvalur 8, owned by Icelandic multi-millionaire whaling kingpin Kristján Loftsson, towing dead whales back to port. "Watching the whaling vessel heading into port dragging the dead whales was the definition of a crossroad for Iceland", said Baker, disturbed by the incident. "You can't have dead whales being the only thing seen by people who spend money on whale-watching". After learning of the incident from Baker firsthand, the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI), Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), and WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation are calling on Iceland's Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture to immediately rescind all whaling quotas to protect the country's reputation as a premiere nature tourism destination. To-date, 28 minkes and 91 endangered fin whales have been killed in the 2015 Icelandic whaling season. Iceland’s quotas (number of whales it kills) are self-allocated and are not approved by the International Whaling Commission.

Since its inception in 1991, Iceland’s whale-watching industry has been steadily growing; today, it is estimated that as many as a quarter of all tourists go whale-watching. In 2014, more than 118,000 people took a whale-watch tour out of Reykjavík, generating more than 940 million krónur (₤4.5 million/US$7.1 million) in ticket sales and millions more in associated purchases.

Representatives of Iceland’s minke and fin whaling industries downplay the potential negative impact of their activities on tourism. However, as Baker’s experience demonstrates, the two industries are diametrically opposed and IceWhale, the Icelandic whale-watch association, concurs. CONTINUED BELOW

vron09 Facts, one day I will make it on a session of #SeaShepard and fight for our #oceans! My #son who loves marine life has given me this passion to spread the word about the horrible acts in the sea. Whales are the center of the ecosystem, kill them we die. The numbers don't lie and should make anyone sick, science research is a bunch of lies! #savetheplanet #sad #whales #dolphins #nextgeneration #eatsomebroccoli #seaworld #seaworldsucks #whalewars #thankinggod #forthosepeople #paulwatson is #legit #badass #whatreallymatters #saveourseas 6d

Normal Sea Shepherd
mrs.ltxy " We're just a conceited naked ape, but in our minds we're some " divinie legend" and we see ourselves as some sort of God, seeing we can decide what will live and what will die, what will be saved and what will be destroyed, but honestly we're just a bunch of primates out of control." - Paul Watson

f.oley A free sampling of Soirée Squad takes on Kings Park. You only get the full soirée package if you pay, this is the free sample you'd get at Costco (or Sam's Club for you lowly peasants and BJ's for you weird fucks)
