How to use whaling in a sentence?

  1. Ken Findlay:

    What we found here is reflective of the abilities of these animals to bounce back from very severe whaling pressure in the last century. Over 200,000 humpback whales were taken from the Southern hemisphere last year, it absolutely amazed me that 30 to 40 years later, we've seen these populations rebounding as they are. That gives me hope. It tells me something about the state of the ocean.

  2. Joji Morishita:

    The solution is that we have to agree to disagree, however, this does not mean that we will take all whales - exactly because we'd like to have sustainable whaling, we'd like to have a healthy whale population.

  3. Joji Morishita:

    There's no change in our stance on resuming whaling.

  5. Allison Warden:

    I don't know what our culture would be without whaling. It's at the center of everything we do, it's a different relationship than just going to the grocery store. The whale feeds the entire community.
