Report highlights the devastation of mass whale slaughter

New research shows that sperm whales have still not recovered more than 35 years after the last whale was killed in the Southern Ocean.

Work undertaken by Macquarie University indicates that there is no evidence of any growth in the population of male sperm whales off Western Australia, showing just how devastating the impact of mass whale slaughter can be and how important the current ban on commercial whaling still is.

This whale species suffered major losses during Australia’s peak whaling periods, seeing a massive population reduction of 74% between 1955 and 1978.

Today, Australia is a strong opponent of whale hunting and recently won it’s international court case against Japan to stop Japanese so-called ‘scientific’ whale hunts in the Antarctic.
