An animal welfare group is enlisting the help of eBay to protect endangered fin whales hunted by Icelandic ships.
The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) will auction "rights" to a whale's life on the online site.
WSPA wants to raise $180,000 (Â£95,000), the value of meat from a fin whale; it then aims to pay this sum to hunters, and ask them to let one whale go.
