Shell oil platform in Russia's Far East driving Western Pacific grey whales to extiction

Western Pacific grey whales are highly endangered. Only about a 100 remains. An oil platform, constructed by Royal Dutch Shell in the Russian Far East, is disrupting the feeding patterns of the last remaining population. This has enraged the conservationists. They have called for an immediate halt to this deleterious project that would spell doom of Western Pacific grey whales

Environmentalists have been crying hoarse against this project right from the beginning.. Yet Shell has gone about doing it against the wishes of environmentalists. Now we have the sad story of whales that are going to disappear forever. Surely there must be a way to stop this atrocity. Western world wake up!
