Controversial grey whale hunt approved for Washington State’s Makah Tribe

From Global News.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the U.S. has granted the Makah Tribe of Washington state the approval to harvest as many as 25 grey whales over the next 10 years.

Before any hunt starts, NOAA Fisheries and the Tribe must agree on the expedition, under the Whaling Convention Act, and the Tribe must apply for and receive a hunting permit.

As Kylie Stanton reports, the Makah Tribe says it’s an important part of their culture, but critics are questioning whether it’s really necessary.
