Greenpeace — Let’s Stop Watering Down Whale Protection

Let’s Stop Watering Down Whale Protection – The Time for the South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary is Now!

During the first week of July, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) is set to meet in Panama. At the IWC meeting last year, a measure was passed that makes it much more difficult for Japan to keep paying small, developing nations to vote with them on their agenda to restart commercial whaling. While a noteworthy achievement, whale conservation overall has gained a little momentum.

At this year’s meeting, the IWC can give new life to the effort, passing a proposal to designate the entire South Atlantic Ocean as a whale sanctuary (SAWS).
