They radio the Japanese government's whaling fleet as the ships leave the whaling grounds. The government confirmed that this year's whaling season is over and the message relayed from the Esperanza is: "For the sake of the environment, the whales and your crew - never again!"Locations:International Waters-Southern OceanDate:28 Feb, 2007Credit:© Greenpeace / Daniel BeltráMaximum size:4368px X 2912pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Direct communications-Greenpeace crew-Harbours-Indoors-KWCI (GPI)-Men-MY Esperanza-Oceans (campaign title)-People-Two people-WomenShoot: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".
