As a whole, whale hunting has become more and more conventional. It seems like nothing is wrong for hunting whales from the ocean. If this activity continues to be uncontrolled, whales will extinct in one day. Although whale hunting is known to be profitable to the hunters, whaling is still unacceptable because they are the beautiful creation of mother nature that we have to protect, it is considered as animal cruelty or abusion and it will cause pollution to the sea, thus becoming danger to human beings. First and foremost, whaling should be completely banned to
If any species are in endanger, they should be protected by the regulation and provision. What makes the massive conflict on Whaling is that although the Whales are endangered animals, however, in contrast, as the regulation labeled, the Whales were treated as the natural resource historically. Whether the Whale as the natural resource or not, it has to be evaluated carefully based on the scientific research and ethic's point of view. Evaluation of cultural importance is also critical. A Certain level of preserving the culture is essential since Whaling was a part of Japan's history, but actual Whaling may not be necessary for future
Today, modern technology has replaced the need for whale products, so there is no need to kill whales for their oil” (Campaign Whale, n.d.). I don’t believe that the whaling ban constitutes a violation of these nations’ sovereignty. If other countries who used to be whalers can join with the rest of the world to ban whaling, why couldn’t Norway and Japan? This will be an opportunity for them to adapt or focus on other resources within their country to fill the void created by the whaling ban. Cultural exemptions at a general level should be settled and mediated by a committee that has
While this is popular world opinion does not always mean it is correct, or in some cases wrong. To balance the claims extremes should not be taken. As with allowing whaling, moderations could be put into place. It could be allowed with only a certain number of whales per year or in keeping with a nation's sovereignty leaving the decisions about whether or not to allow whaling to the nations in which whaling exists or is part of the culture. I am still strongly for allowing or denying certain things only if they are for everyone or no one.
As its outcomes are generally considered as trustful and reliable, the mistake of Sarah Allen, a Berkeley researcher and conservationist in her report “Drakes Estero: a sheltered wilderness estuary” by misquoting another research (from Roberto Anima). Even scientific materials can be wrong. In fact, this is the human factors using this knowledge which can be mistaken. As a result, this “scientific misconduct”, shared with the media and political circles shows evidence of oyster farm negative disturbance on the wildlife in Drake Estero. Dominant voices in the controversy are more likely to be heard.
Tony Nunez Ms. Turcik Viking- Exploration & Conquest Mar. 1 2018 Viking Exploration & Conquest The Vikings dominated trade and exploration from 793 Ad to 1066 Ad. This time period was known as the Viking Age. The Vikings established a name for themselves as Traders, Explorers and Warriors. They explored in Greenland and parts of Canada five hundred years prior to Columbus.
Mycenaean civilization rose up when Minoan civilization had fallen adopting much of the ways of the Minoans. Things like their art and writing system were very similar to the Minoans and I believe the Mycenaeans carried on the influence and memory of the Minoans. I agree that they did make the trade their own soon rising to become a powerful civilization. The weight of the military influence would motivate me not to live near the main city and I don’t like big cities but living near the ocean would be a great characteristic that if I was a part of that time I would enjoy.
By allowing a customer to purchase rhino horn from a legal and more ethical source, the black market along with rhino poach will no longer be needed and rhinos will be seen as more valuable alive than dead which would promote the avoidance of a decreasing population. With these financial benefits rhinos would be desirable to game farms and reserves and this would allow for their population to thrive. Communities would be encouraged to partake in farming rhinos allowing themselves to grow financially along with their care for the rhino population, instead of being a part of the lucrative poaching of the animals. Researcher at African Centre for Disaster Studies, Michael Murphee, supports a proposal by San Parks to “loan rhinos to these communities so they can benefit from legal harvesting and trade in horns.” Which is an example of the small measures that could be taken to further control the use of the strategy. I do believe that this would create a “revolution” of the view on rhino in South
Hello, everyone. Today, I’d like to introduce to you the decreasing of blue whales and think together from moral standpoint about some words which are carelessly used now and then. I’m afraid this topic a little deviates from environmental problems, but to prevent us from repeating same mistakes in nature, it is necessary not only survey natural environment but also overturn our thought against nature and all living things in the earth from the root. It has passed long time since the decreasing of the number of blue whale started to become the problem. We can attribute this problem to over whaling for the commercial purpose.
By placing emphasis on cultural heritage, people are seeking identity and mutual recognition, however; cultural distinctiveness can increase divisiveness and foster conflict. To best resolve the whaling conflict, the World trade Organisation should still be a part of the process of resolving conflict especially that in the case of Japan and Norway they were facing sanctions that not only related to whaling but trading as a whole. Another area of international trade was at stake and assistance was required to decide a
