The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society was full of hope when its latest anti-whaling stunt was launched a couple of weeks ago:
The organization’s flagship M/Y Farley Mowat is expected to arrive in the whaling area during the second week in January where the flagship will rendezvous with the organization’s faster ship Robert Hunter. The two ships with over 60 international volunteer crewmembers, a helicopter, and numerous smaller vessels will confront the Japanese whalers on the high seas.
Well, they would, if they could find them:
Frustrated anti-whaling campaigners yesterday offered a $25,000 reward for help in locating the Japanese whaling fleet that is hiding in waters near Antarctica …
Two Sea Shepherd ships have unsuccessfully searched for the Japanese whalers in the Ross Sea for the past 12 days.
Maybe Greenpeace can help … or maybe not:
The Greenpeace ship Esperanza left Auckland on Friday and will reach the Ross Sea late this week to join the hunt.
But the two groups hate each other almost as much as they hate the whalers.
Greenpeace said it did not know the co-ordinates of the whalers but would not tell Sea Shepherd even if it did.
