IFAW Names Ramage Whale Program Manager
“Patrick Ramage will provide a style and caliber of leadership truly worthy of the incredible work IFAW is doing to promote the welfare of whales around the world,” said Dr. Joth Singh, IFAW’s Director of Wildlife and Habitat Protection.
“Despite decades of steady progress, whales face more threats today than at
any other time in history,” said Ramage, “and IFAW is doing more than any other
institution on the planet to protect them. Yet almost 30,000 whales have
been killed since the worldwide ban on commercial whaling.
“The Japanese government will this year commence a hunt for 50 magnificent humpback whales in an internationally recognized whale sanctuary. Firm action by the United States and other countries is urgently needed to protect these incredible creatures for future generations.”
With more than 10 years of experience with IFAW, Ramage previously served as Public Affairs Director, leading the organization’s media, government relations, and public education efforts around the world.
