Fans of the Animal Planet show Whale Wars will be happy to know that the show has been renewed for a 6th season.
The show follows the exploits of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as they try to stop Japanese whaling ships from hunting in the Southern Ocean. According to the show's web site on Animal Planet:
The series has enthralled audiences who have witnessed the dangerous cat-and-mouse game at the far end of the globe between the Sea Shepherds and the whalers. For years, Captain Paul Watson and his Sea Shepherd Conservation Society crew have taken to the high seas in an attempt to stop Japanese ships from hunting whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. WHALE WARS documents the ongoing battles in the icy Antarctic waters as the conflict between Sea Shepherds and the whalers grows more intense with each engagement -- each pushing the other to the limit to fight for their beliefs.
To be honest, I've seen the show only once or twice. I don't really agree with the tactics that Sea Shepherd uses, although they do seem to be working as the number of whales that the Japanese have killed has decreased over the past few years. What do you think of Whale Wars? Do you watch the show?
