FED: Aust thwarts Japan bid to end whaling ban

Date: Sat 15 Sep 2018


Japan has failed in its bid to overturn a 32-year ban on commercial whaling in a win for the Australian government and conservationists.

The International Whaling Commission has rejected the proposal from Japan, which argued whale populations had recovered sufficiently. The vote was defeated 41 to 27 on Friday after a five-day meeting in Brazil.

The commission also rejected attempts to weaken its decision-making rules and establish catch limits for commercial whaling.

Japan, Norway and Iceland continue to hunt whales each year in defiance of the ban.

Australia has been one of Japan's biggest critics on the issue and was one of just three countries out of the total 75 nations present to send a ministerial representative to the conference in Brazil.
