The industry causes unacceptable threat to whales and the pristine environment posed by the Japanese whaling fleet. The fleet's re-fuelling vessel, the Oriental Bluebird, which is tied to the whaling factory ship, Nisshin Maru after it was disabled by fire, is operating illegally as a single hulled oil tanker and the Japanese fleet has no ice-class vessels.Locations:International Waters-Ross Sea-Southern OceanDate:22 Feb, 2007Credit:© Greenpeace / Daniel BeltráMaximum size:4992px X 3328pxKeywords:Aerial view-Banners-Climate (campaign title)-Day-Greenpeace activists-Greenpeace crew-Harbours-KWCI (GPI)-Large group of people-MY Esperanza-Oceans (campaign title)-OutdoorsShoot:Defending Our Oceans Southern Ocean Tour 2007The Greenpeace ship MY Esperanza is on her route towards Antarctica through the icy reaches of the Southern Ocean. This is the end of the 14 month Defending Our Oceans expedition which was started by a trip to the Southern Ocean to confront the Japanese government's whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. At the end of this expedition Greenpeace return to the whale sanctuary too, once again, defend the whales. Despite a moratorium on commercial whaling, the hunt for whale meat continues through the loophole of "scientific purposes".
