Peter Garrett: Whale killing sickens me

ENVIRONMENT Minister Peter Garrett has described as "distressing" photos showing the Japanese whaling fleet dragging aboard a dead mother whale and her calf.

He says the photos would help build up global opposition to whaling.

"This isn't about science. It isn't about research ... they're calling it science but really it's killing whales."

The federal government was determined to continue its campaign against the slaughter, he said.

A special whaling envoy would be appointed to talk with the Japanese and legal action had not been ruled out.
