Uncertainty about the future of minke whaling in Iceland 💪

As a result of the action taken by the former Minister of Fisheries Þor­gerður Katrín Gunn­ars­dótt­ir to expand the no-hunting zone in Faxaflói Bay (also the main hunting ground for Iceland's minke whalers) it is uncertain if this year's hunt will go ahead according to this article.

The decision to close this particular area, where 82,3% of minke whales have been killed during the past 10 years, has been her last act... in office in late 2017.

The former Minister of Fisheries visited Hard To Port's historic 46 h anti-whaling protest infront of her ministry last summer and stated that she partly agrees with our efforts.

There should be no place for the cruel killing of endangered wildlife in a progressive nation like Iceland. Whales should be celebrated, not killed.
