Many want a change of wording within the regulations of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling, who created the ICW, because many of the anti-walling supporters within the convention believe that the clauses have granted the right for the pro-whaling people to keep doing what they are doing. With that being said, the majority of the members disapprove whaling operations (Iliff, 2006). In 2006, the Japanese attempted to normalize the ICW and by that they wanted to return to the old ways of the ICRW which favored the pro-whaling supporters. Luckily, the Japanese failed to pass this since the meeting they organized was boycotted by anti-whaling nations and because now the majority of supporters belonged to the anti-whaling group. This lead to the process of modernizing the ICRW, but was met with much resistance by the opposite side (Iliff, 2006).
Many people may have seen the American reality TV show, "Whale Wars," it was broadcasted from the year 2008 to 2015. The show was about a group of activists' harassment and fight against the Japanese whaling ship. How the show depicted the fight between a group and Japanese ship was controversial, the show was cut off without a conclusion about this battle, but it concluded in me that the issue has to be ended without such fight. As a native Japanese myself, the Whale catching has been a controversial topic for decades, in particular, environmental activities against whaling increased rapidly since the 1980s and broadcasted or made the articles, the topic certainly caught the attention from worldwide. Japan adhere to 1946 International
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.
They will soon bite the dust in the event that they are not pushed back to ocean. While a few people exploit these whales to gather their meat and organs, the majority of local people of Whangara endeavor to sort out a salvage endeavor and convey the whales back to ocean. At the point when Koro comes back from an excursion he had been on amid the trial, he comments with extraordinary anguish that this is an indication for them. The following night a much greater occasion happens, this time saw not by everybody but rather just by the little Maori group inside of the town. Amid the night, Rawiri, Koro, Kahu and Nanny hear a blasting sound originating from the ocean, as though an incredible entryway has recently opened, and after that they witness an expansive gathering of enormous whales rise up out of the base of the ocean.
Festivals does not mean that you must take an animal's life. Festivals are a time when you can spend and cherish the time with your loved ones. Finally I would like to conclude this essay by saying that Ritual Slaughter should be banned immediately as it affects the rights of an animal and doesn’t give them any chance to live. These animals are sacred and precious. The more we
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
The Norwegian and Japanese positions and arguments to be permitted with the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption should not be considered. According to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, “the whaling industry is in decline and the demand for meat is falling” (WDC, n.d.). Given this statement, I would support the ban of whaling worldwide. In addition, it would be difficult and costly to monitor the whaling activity that is taking place in waters where whales frequent. The separation of non-endangered species will not deter whalers from hunting any whale in sight.
Do you agree with the Norwegian and Japanese position on permitting the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption? Answer: I think to certain extend I agree to maintain some level of whaling, I guess that it should only be allowed in the villages that depend of this meat as a main source of food, and it should be banned in places where is only done to seek monetary gain. Do you think the whaling ban constitutes a violation of these nations' sovereignty? Answer: I don't believe that sovereignty should be taken that seriously as it is only an idea and it does not affects peoples life in any way and it is not vital for human kind survival, I do think like I mention on the question below, that if it is an imperative
Despite common beliefs about the threat to human beings, they do not attack people without a definite or convincing reason; therefore, the commonly held view of the “man-eater” is erroneous. Consequently these marine animals should be protected but the shark hunting should be banned because of their high rate of extinction. In the period of Paleozoic Era, about 300 million years ago, marine life was arranged in a totally different way from now. Enormous creatures dwelled the aquatic depths and no smaller scale fish would approach them. For example, although it was a baleen whale, Archaeomysticetus was not like
"There is nothing to throw away from a whale except its voice" (Arader, 2012). This ancient Japanese proverb demonstrates the depth of whaling within the Japanese culture throughout the ages. According to the Kijoki, the oldest chronicle in Japan recording the ancient Japanese history; the first emperor of Japan used to eat whale meat and fishing villages built whale monuments to celebrate whale hunting and shrines to worship the whale as well (Facts About Japan, n.d.). Similarly, whaling has a considerable impact on the Norwegian culture that date back to the age of the Vikings. Fishing villages in Norway relied heavily on whales as a resource as, according to sources that date back to the beginning of the 20th century, "one sperm whale provided around 10 tons of fat, 3 tons of carcass meal, and 7 tons of bone meal" (Húsavík Whale Museum, n.d.).
