Environmental activities group Sea Shepherd warned Japan on Sunday against resuming "research" whaling in the Antarctic and called on the Australian government to intervene. After a decade of harassment by Sea Shepherd, Japan was forced to abandon its 2014-15 Southern Ocean hunt after the International Court of Justice said annual expedition was a commercial activity masquerading as research. But on Saturday Japanee media reported that it would start again next year, despite a call by global regulators for more evidence that the expeditons have a scientific porpuse.
