Vote: Is it OK to hunt whales for science?

A humpback whale's tail

Hunting whales for their meat is banned all over the world, but loads of them are still killed every year.

And some countries, like Japan, are against the ban and have carried on hunting whales, saying it's for scientific research.

But anti-whaling groups reckon it's damaging whale populations and say the whale meat is still ending up in shops anyway.

What do you think?
