After hobbling into the Port of Surabaya, East Java in Indonesia. The Japanese "Research"* vessel Yushin Maru # 2 has been ordered to leave port without much needed repairs to its props. The Indonesian Forestry Authorities, the CITES Authorities and local government officials in East Java demanded the expulsion of the Yushin Maru #2 from Surabaya harbour and from Indonesian waters.
CONGRATULATIONS to ALL involved in this GREAT VICTORY for Whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
