In a move to show support from the highest levels of Tongan Society, the evening will be hosted by the Her Royal Highness, Princess Salote Mafile’o Pilolevu Tuita, whose father, the Late King Taufa’ahau Tupou IV courageously banned whaling in Tonga in 1978 and led the way to a thriving whale watching industry. 
 
The Jonah and the Whale campaign is in direct response to the Government of Japan’s intention to kill more than 1000 whales including 50 humpbacks as part of its so-called “scientific” whaling program in the Southern Ocean

Penguins affected by Uruguay oil spill returned to ocean

This rescue not only saved the lives of these animals, but also made it possible for IFAW to share its expertise in carrying out this type of rescue operation with SOCOBIOMA.
 
“When a bird’s plumage is contaminated with oil or any chemical, it loses its permeability and, as a consequence, its ability to regulate its body temperature. In this case, the penguins are forced out of the freezing waters in a state of hypothermia, which leads to dehydration and starvation,” said Dr.

Iceland signals an end to its commercial whaling enterprise due to lack of consumer demand

IFAW opposes whaling on the grounds that it is cruel and unnecessary. Economic studies in Iceland commissioned by IFAW and the Iceland Nature Conservation Association (INCA), have also revealed very little demand for the meat in Iceland or elsewhere, in contrast to the country’s successful whale watching industry, which generates more than US$20 million in revenue each year.
 
“This is fantastic news for whales and for Iceland,” said Robbie Marsland, Director of IFAW’s UK office.
