Jonah and the whale
One good thing about the forum in Tonga is the presence of Jonah and his attentiveness to the plight of whales. I'll try and find out more later. This is the snippet I read in the Fiji Post. Go Jonah! Stories also in Scoop from New Zealand.
Jonah Lomu may be at this year’s Forum in Nuku’alofa because he wants to lobby for Forum action against Japanese whaling in our region. Tongan tourism needs all the humpback whales it can get and humpbacks need all the friendly Jonahs they can find. Spitting this Jonah out on to a Vava’u beach won’t help the humpback cause one bit as the Japanese threaten to harvest 50 of them this year.
