Whalers Found!

Greenpeace has found the Japanese Whaling Fleet. Good for them. Let's hope they share the information with the world about where they are.

A GREENPEACE protest ship is in pursuit of a fleet of Japanese whalers in the Southern Ocean after finding the vessels early this morning.

Expedition leader aboard the Greenpeace vessel Esperanza Karli Thomas said the six Japanese ships fled when Greenpeace located them shortly after midnight (AEDT).

"The first thing they did when we approached them was to scatter and run," Ms Thomas said.

"We stayed with the factory ship the Nisshin Maru, which is always the major target," she said.
