Sea Shepherd does a Homerun in 2009-10 Operation Waltzing Matilda

Sea Shepherd beat all records, and odds, and returned home in flying colors from the 2009-10 Waltzing Matilda campaign this season, having saved 528 whales during this season.

The below table shows the original Japanese Killing Target (JKT) and the dramatically reduced numbers that actually fell prey, thanks to direct-intervention by Sea Shepherd.



 JKT Total Killed Whales Saved
Humpback Whales 50 0 50
Fin Whales 50 1 49
Minke Whales 935 506 429
Totals 1035 507 528

We thank Sea Shepherd for cutting down the Japanese Killing Target to less than half this year, and wish them god-speed in their upcoming campaign in the Mediterranien to stop over-fishing of the Bluefin-Tuna.  We pledge to continue our support to this amazing group of conservationists.
