“The overall spill is made up of several slicks, two to three kilometers wide along a total extension of approximately forty kilometers,” reported the local newspaper El Chubut. The Argentine government is analyzing recent satellite imagery to determine the cause of the spill but has yet to determine where the oil came from. According to local media reports, several corporations are suspected of causing the spill.
 
Locally, IFAW is working with The Fundación Patagonia Natural (FPN) on site. Currently the center is caring for 430 birds.

Japan bows to pressure on humpback whales – but continues largest hunt since whaling ban

Publication Date:

"This is happy news for 50 humpback whales but Japan’s whaling continues to expand,” said Patrick Ramage, IFAW Global Whale Program Manager.  “Withdrawing wild threats to kill humpbacks isn't enough, Japan needs to stop whaling and join the emerging global consensus for whale conservation.”
 
The Government of Japan is currently undertaking the largest whale hunt since a global moratorium on commercial whaling was imposed by the International Whaling Commission in 1986.  Over the next three months Japan plans to kill 935 min

According to the report, the world is now being confronted with a persistent and combined environmental, development and energy crisis that acknowledges the importance of extinction rates and biodiversity on humanity’s very prospects for survival.  Current documented rates of extinction are roughly 100 times higher than rates indicated in fossil records, and the UNEP report suggests that extinction rates may increase up to 10,000 times the base rate over the coming decades.

“This export should not have taken place.  It undermines the good reputation that the Solomon Islands Government has built up since taking the decision to ban the export of live dolphins in 2005.  We implore the Government to reinstate that ban immediately for the sake of the Solomon Island’s precious marine wildlife and their standing on the international stage,” Mick McIntyre, Director of IFAW Asia Pacific, said.
 
Recent research by IFAW has shown that the diversity of both whale and dolphin species in waters of the Solomon Islands
