Greenpeace finds the Japanese fleet

It is great news that Greenpeace has found the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. It has already been an interesting lead up to the whaling "season" with Japan announcing that it would hunt Humpbacks then deciding against it, Australia getting very publicly getting annoyed at Japan over whaling (a first, thanks to a change of government in Canberra) and the Sea Shepard's boat Robert Hunter being renamed the Steve Irwin. All in all this is probably the most media attention whaling has had for several years.

This time also has great personal interest to me as the doctor aboard the Esperanza is Clive Strauss, a longtime family friend, whom my brother house sits for when he is gone on his often absences.
