Projects: The Faroese Whale Kill

In the Faroe Islands, a protectorate of Denmark with 48,000 inhabitants, the 400-year-old tradition of pilot whale killing still takes place. Though it is very controversial internationally, the practice is valued and closely protected by the Faroese. Entire communities take part in the whale kill, known as “Grindaboð”, and the meat and blubber is divided up equally between everyone in the village.
