Japan announced it would withdraw from an international agreement, the International Whaling Commission, and resume its commercial whaling. Japan always circumvented the international moratorium on whale hunting by killing whales for scientific research and then selling the meat. Now it says it will only resume hunting within its own waters. Consumption of whale meat has dropped significantly in recent decades due to international campaigns to protect whale species. Pray that Japan will be good stewards of its natural God-created resources (The Bible, Job 12:10).
