Today the 14th Fin whales murdered in #Iceland’s illegal commercial hunt 2018
Two Fin Whale beached today near the river at Oyrini between Hvalvik and Streymnes in #FaroeIslands. Coincidence, or is it related to Iceland’s illegal whaling; probably already.
Perhaps they are still young Fin Whales, their mothers were murdered by Kristian Loftsson in recent days of whaling. Young Fin Whale need their mothers, need her protection, depend her milk and need her training for to live, young Fin Whale can not survive alone in the ocean.
It is still unclear whether these fin whales survived or not.
And it need 30 years for a new Fin Whale generation !!!
Whaling is crime and double murder !
#Norway, #Japan and maybe #Iceland are mainly killing female whale in illegal whaling; many killed mother whale had a baby. The result: Whale baby mass starving through commercial whaling!
A whale baby can’t survive without her mother.
Nobody notice their starvation deaths In the wide open ocean!
Iceland is one of only three nations — including Norway and Japan — that have chosen to ignore the international moratorium on hunting whales, established in 1986. Hvalur hf’s aging whaling ships use exploding harpoon guns that cause immense pain and suffering to the endangered fin whales before they die. There is no local market for endangered fin whale meat, so it is exported to Japan.
Whale watching in Iceland is a responsible and highly profitable alternative to the whaling industry, and is growing in popularity as people visit Iceland to see these majestic marine mammals swimming free in the oceans where they belong.
Please email or write polite letters voicing your support for Iceland’s whale watching industry and the establishment of a national whale sanctuary in Iceland’s territorial waters:
