UK and German citizens overwhelmingly reject Iceland’s commercial whaling
Common minke whale
Back in the 1960's submarines detected a bizarre "quacking" sound in the southern ocean and have been perplexed as to its origins ever since. The noise - nicknamed the "bio-duck" - was only heard during winter and spring months and was attributed to everything from ships to fish, but no-one really knew what was making the noise and until now it was purely guess work.
It’s not often that whaling campaigners are left momentarily speechless –we’re too used to dealing with the unimaginable and standing up for the rights of those that have no voice – but events at this week’s Green Week fair in Germany left us open-mouthed and left others, some in high places, with egg on their faces.
