Care 2 reports whalers from Iceland have killed 148 endangered fin whales and 60 minke whales this year.
And of course, there is a humane, alternative industry to whaling – tourism. Yet the killing goes on.
Care 2 notes in its writeup to promote a petition drive – “” Whale watching generates more than $15 million a year for coastal communities in Iceland – a humane, sustainable and profitable alternative to whaling. “”
It is inexcusable to torture intelligent beings such as whales in this way. But to kill endangered species for greed is especially evil. The nation of Iceland should be ashamed that it supports this industry.
