We are very pleased that the verdict against the oil group Total, the Italian certification company Rina, the Italian owner Giuseppe Savarese and Antonio Pollara, chief executive of the Panship management company, will provide our partner Bretagne Vivante with considerable support for the criminal lawsuit that it has brought, the aim being, no more no less, to redress the prejudice caused by the gigantic oil slick caused by the shipwreck in December 1999.

Publication Date: 
Mié, 01/02/2008
“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: 
Vie, 12/21/2007
"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

“The Canadian government’s claim that 98% of the seals are killed humanely in the commercial seal hunt is exposed in the report as being scientifically incorrect.  This report reveals the truth about Canada’s commercial seal hunt, and destroys one of the greatest myths constantly propagated by the Canadian government”, said Sheryl Fink, Senior Researcher with IFAW.
 
In its examination of Canada’s commercial seal hunt, the EFSA scientists found that:

    Austrian Chancellor signals support for a national ban on seal products

    This past April, the Austrian Parliament unanimously voted on a motion in favor of a trade ban. If the ban passes in early 2008, this decision could make Austria the fourth nation in the European Union to implement a ban on seal products, following Belgium, The Netherlands and Slovenia. As with other national bans, this initiative will eliminate the Austrian market from the commercial seal trade, putting further pressure on the Canadian government to end the commercial seal hunt.
