Is what the sea shepherd doing legal?

    Though opinions differ, the general consensus is that they can’t point to any legal authority that gives them the right to stop Japanese whaling ships. They cite the World Charter for Nature, and it is a noble idea to stand behind the Charter’s pledge to protect nature, but it does not give any group authority to enforce this pledge. So no, although many agree with the Sea Shepherd’s actions, they do not have the support of the law. Japan is quick to point this out and has successfully requested that the police of the conservationists’ home countries put some of them on international Wanted lists.
