A Japanese whaling ship entered into the EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone).“Apology by Japan is desirable” said NZ Prime Minister.


On February 11, Prime Minister of New Zealand John Philip Key told the local press corps that it is desirable that there be an apology from the Japanese side concerning the Japanese whale research group that entered into the EEZ in New Zealand.
Prime Minister Key emphasized that New Zealand notified the Japanese in advance that they would not be welcome to enter into the EEZ as the New Zealand government is strongly against the whale research.
When the press corps asked whether he wants to get an apology from Japan, he answered that it would be desirable, and that he would watch the situation.
The patrol boat Dai2 Shonanmaru, associated with the whale research ship, entered into the EEZ when they chased a Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship.
On February 10, New Zealand's government called the Japanese ambassador to express “deep disappointment”.
The Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga replied that there was no problem with their behavior under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.(Kyodo)

About Us

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
