Real Whale Research, not Whale Hunting!

Terri Irwin has stepped up with an appropriate response to help end Japan's facade to the nations. Animals don't have to be killed to find out their life biology. It seems to me that the other governments should have already suggested alternative forms of research, but it is great that Terri Irwin has come up with a great idea. Thanks Terri!
Another idea that has never happened, the Japanese government should not be allowed to sell the whale meat for human or animal consumption.

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- The widow of TV "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin announced Thursday she will launch non-lethal research of whales in Antarctic waters next year in hopes of showing that Japan's scientific whale kill is a sham.

Tokyo has staunchly defended its annual cull of more than 1,000 whales as crucial for research, saying it is necessary to kill the whales to properly gather information about their eating, breeding and migratory habits.
Japan had planned to kill up to 50 endangered humpback whales this season, but backed away from the plan in the face of strong international condemnation.
"We are determined to show the Japanese they can stop all whaling, not just humpbacks," Irwin said.
