6:37 am
a few days left since permit to catch fin whales expires and the activists are trying to prevent him from renewing it. that would put an end to his wavelength he has a quote from the icelandic government that he can go out and kill these endangered species you know they are an endangered species so why does he get to do it people need to know what's going on you know a local would realise that the still goes on. for most. of them. in the past see shepherd's campaigns have been controversial with some critics even labeling its tactics of direct action and sabotage as environmental terrorists and . these pictures from two thousand and eight sea shepherd is attacking japanese fishermen. smugglers the first time
6:38 am
i've been here and i just think it is an amazing. just breathtaking play and it's just this area but to spoil the whole of iceland. the man down there on the poor. thing will be pulling a no. the fin whale is the second largest animal in the world. it can be up to twenty six meters long and weigh up to eighty tons. decades of overfishing have endangered it as a species. lost some catches only fin whales making him particularly controversial. the loudest you where you countries are all x. whales able whale themselves. couldn't manage anything because their greed was too much they quote unquote of course. we want to do layer it with this stuff on this
6:39 am
this side to the plant beverly we are trying to turn him around. the international whaling commission considers the stocks around iceland healthy. this is why iceland allows whaling. everyway stocks are. healthy you have a sustainable harvest you harvest if you it's not sustainable you don't have a start it's as easy as that. they are put into the gun they have. made fun of for words and it penetrates through the into the animal in the cavity it explodes inside and kills the. cop and weighs more than sixty kilos one shot kills most whales sometimes two or three shots a needed. japanese whalers
6:40 am
a seen here shooting a fin whale in two thousand and eight. japan a new way of the only other countries to have commercial whaling. japan calls it research. these three countries defy the moratorium on commercial whaling that was issued in one thousand nine hundred six when several species when their extinction. iceland resumed whaling in two thousand and six this was the reaction when the first strip arrived back at the docks with its catch all the scientific outlets on our sites all over the ideas only to harvest the waste on the basis of sustainability and. all of the precautionary approach. money. oh i head off heading off on any.
6:41 am
and i've got a couple hours. ago when i had a wedding out with totally furred auto johansson to see whales that are alive we use in a scene make us backwards in a way to know where those white big dolphins for five years the young captain has made a living from taking tourists on will watching tourists. it has become a lucrative business in iceland even bigger than whaling. and lord suffer got the word out in your forgot that last year three hundred seventy thousand tourists went on whale safaris in iceland there it is again. one for the. real coach it was their nature because they weren't going to work their rights were white and we were going to be a majority of icelanders were in favor of waiting for
6:42 am
a long time but an increasing number and now against it like totally for being shot with our poor and drawn it says no. it's not my way and i don't like. in june two thousand and eighteen paul showed icelandic public opinion on whaling is now evenly split one third in favor one third against and undecided way watching industry gives way more jobs on the way more money for everyone it's just a no we can see all of these are the same out of more four hundred dollars a year still didn't you never see the. eucharist trying and system now. you were not at the whales are deathly like majestic animals and i think it's a cruel punishment oeuvre it's basically cruel and unusual punishment to hunt them and expressly if they're eating them always on mammals and and they deserve equal
6:43 am
respect like us we are mamas and they deserve the same respect as us and they maintain an ecosystem and i think we have to respect that ecosystem and nature so to me that's a complete no no i slung that says in in a small scale and they've gone to extinct the race then i don't mind do you see the boat over there. what is that that's the whaling boat that i figured it's going out . according to turn the third whaling is detrimental to whale tourism. would go get it i agree responses we've council a solution the old saying. i think this whole abortion never going to go there. for me it's not a cultural. thing with me there's no culture. for his part christian lots and doesn't believe that whaling damages tourism he says
6:44 am
the number of tourists has risen from under five hundred thousand in two thousand and ten to over two million last year. i say it's due to the way. you think is due to really why not people are interested to come and see and taste . and they're saying. some of these people. can be. this is kind of an average size. farmer likes to see you know you like the whales too. i'm sure there would be some people who say that you don't yeah i don't care less about that i've been vaccinated for that for a long time go. this. place it's. so different from the.
6:45 am
this is. really i guess it's better to use this for some. of the above to do that i don't think there's something i think of it. they just take a slice in the sky and i'll. see shepherds sees it and he whaling campaign as its most important mission the head of the n.g.o.s u.k. branch rob reed has arrived to reinforce the message.
6:46 am
is not acceptable. for one man or company to make his money i phone in killing of an endangered species the organization has tried to stop the last cent from whaling for thirty two years. is good when pharmacy was sunk silly him or see how you like every day seem to do going to. change. in five years that i have a credit limit on the bottom off my blood flow going to object to and think that they're going to when i should be. i'm somewhat changed. i actually see this is quite a a proud achievements in seizure of his history. yes devival is there and that's for good reason that in that this is a company killing the second largest well on the planet is.
6:47 am
christian you know looking at those two books over there does it annoy you what happened yeah it's. kind of vandalism is there a new round you know we've written shooter games to go for rides along don't pay the bill. but it was clear that you up the list and again. yes i suppose it is vandalism and vandalism happening to the wedding station but i was a long time ago in a different set of circumstances and that's not the campaign we've running today. to apprise this kind of wailing in austin. over the ships in the world should be like these to. bust your wife going to motivate you. know is asking everything movement i call and they don't want anything very good fishing. deer hunting you just name it they would argue that they are fighting a nonviolent fight against you know animal cruelty or the extinction of animals
6:48 am
that's what they say. if these. terror. people are going to take the law in their hunts you know you have a problem. usually christian lofts and explodes over ninety percent of the whale meat to japan but protests and restrictions mean that no one will transport the meat. and these guys are just g.p.s. of the shipping industry you need gas powered for and i do think that they hadn't made the rounds they have made in their home you. know we just just kind of both know. for sure his his stuff and i think. he may be. possibly proud of the whiting. i think he has seen genuinely likes being infamous he likes being my son's arrive.
