Abstract

The United States, encouraged by environmental and animal protection organizations, has been the major proponent of effective measures to conserve whales. Japan, on the other hand, has been the most outspoken defender of whaling. A major confrontation between the two countries occurred in Japan Whaling Association v. American Cetacean Society.' The United States blinked.4 This pro-whaling decision by the United States Supreme Court had two significant political and legal implications. It intensified the conflict between
conservationists and whalers.' It also demonstrated the Court's preference for deferring to the Executive Branch's interpretation of its congressional mandate.
