Whale,a huge and gentle specie, like a mountains swimming in the ocean. Unfortunately, those huge friends are extinguishing, for some reason, there're a large amount of people blame the traditional whale meal in Japan.
It has been a long time since those students start the activity against whale hunting, and it has been longer since people start hunting whales. No matter Eskimo or Japanese, those people have eaten whales for centuries, like all the cultural behavior, there are reason why they eat such a humble animal. It's a precious resource in those cold region, not only its meat but also its oil are treasure for those aborigines in the old ages.
While those act against whale hunting are trying to climb on other's fishing boat and stop the engine, the whale hunting continues like struggles. The whale savers are not satisfied with the international contract but request totally prohibition of whale hunting. Again, their first enemy is Japanese, those who has spears sharped for the whales, and huge fishing boat for the big chunk cut from the whales. However, if whales have been hunted for centuries, what is the exact reason to the drop in number of native whales? Is it possible that Japanese and Eskimo grow so fast that consume too many whales?
People must think about what should we do at the first place to preserve the specie rather than put all the guilt on others and pray for God's forgiveness. The most excessively growing specie that endanger other species is human, and our machines and ships have threaten all the creatures in the ocean for nearly a hundred years. Coincidentally, people start to notice the decrease in whales after they polluted the oceans. There might be further reason for the extinguishing species, not only the whales, like the rise of average temperature, all kinds of pollutions, and any effect brought by human activities.
It's amusing to discuss about what makes people focus on whales. Whales must be more attractive than thousand species of bugs which are facing their Armageddon without Bruce Willy's heroic sacrifice. There will not be a objective reason to focus on one specie only for the reason that we have no criteria to choose the species that must board Noah's Ark, except selfish human. Maybe some day after those talented creatures take over the earth will start an holocaust for human, or not, and it's not your decision to mercy on human or not.
Rather than chasing those fishing boat around the world, there are more things to do to save those diminishing species, to persuade certain countries which releases excessive pollution, to explore new resource or more efficient way to use resources, to reduce population in the world, and to stop wasting the resources we have. The reason behind anti-whale hunting behavior may be quite illogical or not, but there must be an effective way rather than semi-violence which brings and expresses discrimination.
