How is iceland defending their whale slaughter?

    Basically the idea is that by whaling management, they will be able to indefinitely hunt whale without causing the species to go extinct.

    It is a flagrant violation of international law, but, once again, there’s no enforcement mechanism, and no country really cares enough to divert the resources to do something about it.

    Countries like Iceland and Greenland defend their whale slaughter because they consider it a tradition of their native cultures. The Faroh Islands off the coast of Greenland are allowed to kill two whales each year. Greenland’s whale slaughter is regulated by the government of Denmark because Greenland is technically a territory of Denmark. This causes quite a stir in the Danish government because aside from these whale killings, Denmark is one of the most sustainable countries (has the highest percent of renewable energy and highest percent of organic farms).
