The current state of whaling in 2024
Despite the 1986 ban by the International Whaling Commission, Japan has continued to practice whaling. The UN Court of Justice determined Japan’s whaling practices illegal — but that has not stopped the industry. To get around regulations, whaling occurs in places like Taiji island; where the sea actually turns red from the blood of small whales and dolphins that are slaughtered.
