Good question! Many people believe that the era of whaling should be
over and that whales should be watched, enjoyed, studied, allowed to
live freely in the ocean. Japan, Norway and most recently Iceland have
kept whaling going. Mostly minke whales, the smallest baleen whale are
caught, but also sperm and Bryde's whales are being hunted. These
countries believe that their future depends on maintaining the right to
hunt whales, though most other countries around the world disagree and
say that whales can not belong to one country.
I hope this helps. There is a lot of useful information on this website
to answer this question (search under "whaling"), as well as
illustrations, from which your son could make a drawing.
