Editorial Comment:
Japan has announced that they will return to Antarctic whalling in the 2015-2016 season, in spite of a majority resolution declaring Japan's Antarctic whaling illegal, passed at the recent meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC).

According to Dr Phil Clapham, a long standing member of the IWC Scientific Committee, this is an expedcted outcome summed up in his recent publication; "Japan's whaling following the International Court of Justice ruling: Brave New World - Or business as usual? "

It's time for Japan must leave the IWC, read why in 'Why think of Whales at Christmas'.

The fundamental conservation issues for Cetacea that Member Nations of the IWC must devote time and energy to are clearly set-out in the 'Conservation and Values - Global Cetacean Summary Report' prepared by the Australian Government.
