greenferret is worried about the end of the whale-hunting moratorium:

Since 1986, the International Whaling Commission's moratorium on commercial whaling has helped threatened whale populations to recover. Now, the whaling ban itself is threatened. The Obama administration is considering a deal to allow some commercial whaling to resume -- even while some species of whales are still struggling to survive.
