Japan's role in whaling and dolphin-hunting is drawing constant attack from conservation groups.

Despite strong criticisms and sabotage by activists, Japan remain defiant. It bribes member nations of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to support its stance.

The Obama-administration is also backing Japan to lift the ban on whaling.

At present, only three countries defy whaling ban (through loopholes): Japan, Iceland and Norway. South Korea has stated its interest to join the whaling club.

In the bluefin tuna issue, Japan again used its influence to derail the ban.

China is a member of the IWC and CITES.

It now has the opportunity to be different and do the right thing for the environment.

China's successful conservation policy for panda, tiger, black bear and antelope can be extended to these critical issues on the global stage.

China supported the ban on international whaling in 2005. It needs to play a more active role to protect the species.

When Japan and others are on the wrong side of history that pushes endangered species to the brink of extinction, China should stand on the right side of history that helped to preserve and restore endangered species.

While Japan plays an active role in destruction, China should play an active role in conservation.
