    You can find the article in most media, including here:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/26/...ick&module=Well&pgtype=Homepage&section=World

    As @Pheroze notes, the interesting aspect of this from our perspective as hunters is that Japan has publicly stated that the International Whaling commission has become what it was never intended to be - an anti-whaling organization.

    If countries begin to react against the anti-sustainable use agenda, there may be some hope. CITES in particular has come under the thrall of anti-sustainable use advocates, to the point where bargains which were made in good faith by countries are being ignored. It may take the threat of countries (and their funding by the way) leaving to keep some of these organizations at least somewhat honest.

    We can always hope.
