It's taken 8 weeks, but we found them!
The Japanese whalers thought they would escape us. Using the cover of darkness and help from the Japanese navy, they gave
us the slip as they departed Japanese waters eight weeks ago. Then came some tough luck for Greenpeace when we had to leave
our helicopter, Tweety, behind in New Zealand for repairs. But even in the vast and unforgiving Southern Ocean, against all
odds, we've tracked down the whalers.
Some would call that luck. I call it fate.
Now, we've got them on the
run. We've been tailing the factory ship Nisshin Maru for 5 days now and we've literally chased them out of their hunting
grounds. As long as the factory ship is on the run, the fleet can't conduct any whaling.
