In this report, we recount the marine mammal crisis that led to its creation, the structure of the act, and the many examples of success for whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals in our waters because of these common sense protections. Just like these precious animals, the MMPA itself could be in danger from unrestrained industry influence if we don&#39;t act to save it on behalf of these animals and places they call home.</p> </div><p><a href="http://www.ifaw.org/canada/resource-centre/living-success-story-marine-mammal-protection-act" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Conservation Wildlife trade Political advocacy Whales Seals Seals Whales dolphins marine MMPA seals whales Reports, Papers, and Proceedings Sun, 12 Nov 2017 18:58:53 +0000 sdemo 112883 at http://www.ifaw.org Icelandic support for whaling on the decline, polling reveals http://www.ifaw.org/canada/news/icelandic-support-whaling-decline-polling-reveals <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Oct 25 2017</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-optional"> <div class="field-label">Image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_optional" width="300" height="203" title="Icelandic support for whaling on the decline, polling reveals" alt="Icelandic support for whaling on the decline, polling reveals" src="http://d2mlnkprj9wd81.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/minkewhalepic_300px.jpg?1508931018" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p>Icelandic support for minke whaling has dropped by 5% in just one year, <a href="http://www.ifaw.org/sites/default/files/default/IFAW-Gallup-Oct2017-full-version.pdf" target="_blank">according to polling results released today </a>(Wednesday).</p> <p>Gallup polling commissioned by the <a href="http://www.ifaw.org">International Fund for Animal Welfare</a> (IFAW) reveals that 45.8% of Icelanders now claim to support minke whaling, compared to 50.8% last year.
