Humane Society International Inc. v Kyodo Senpaku Kaisha Ltd [2008] FCA 3

In a landmark decision, the Federal Court found that the Humane Society International had standing to bring an injunction against the respondent Japanese company, which owned several ocean vessels engaged in whaling activities in waters claimed by Australia. The respondent was found to have contravened various provisions of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, and as such an injunction was ordered against the respondent from killing, injuring, taking or interfering with whales in the Australian Whale Sanctuary.
