“Scientific whaling is more about whaling than science,” said Dr. Joth Singh, IFAW Director of Wildlife and Habitat. “Japan’s latest plan is commercial whaling in a pitiful disguise and an insult to modern science. There is no scientific justification for killing whales in the 21st century. We already have sufficient information from dead whales.  The Japanese Government should stop whaling now.”

The international community has condemned scientific whaling through 40 IWC resolutions since 1986.

Whale of a rescue

Publication Date: 
Fre, 03/18/2005
On 12 March, three young pilot whales became trapped in a lagoon on the coast of Vava'u in the Kingdom of Tonga. It is believed that they had followed three adult whales into a lagoon, seeking shelter following an attack by sharks.

The three adult pilot whales stranded on the beach and did not survive. However, for the past week the smaller, younger whales have been swimming freely in a lagoon, which is surrounded by reef off the main Vava'u island.

Today, following many attempts to help the animals back to the open ocean, the efforts succeeded.

“Sadly, there is the real threat that, for the first time in the IWC’s recent history, the number of pro-whaling countries will outnumber those opposed to whaling. Given the delicacy of the current position, Kiribati’s vote could tip the scales either way. We implore Kiribati to vote for whale conservation, not whale exploitation,” said IFAW Asia Pacific Marine Campaigner, Darren Kindleysides.

Kiribati is the second Pacific Island Country to have joined the IWC in the last year.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Canadian government in this important project,” IFAW Canada campaigner Barbara Cartwright said.

The Canadian Wildlife Service recently retired 228 Motorola PT 300 radios used to protect wildlife between 1973 and 2000, and approached IFAW in hope that they could find suitable anti-poaching agencies in Africa in need of radios.

IFAW identified wildlife agencies in Chad, Mali, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania and Nigeria interested in receiving the radios.
