Penguins released back to wild after oil spill in Argentina

Publication Date: 
Lu, 07/31/2006
In early May, several hundred oiled Magellanic penguins began washing ashore in the Cabo Virgenes Nature Reserve in Argentina, about 1,700 miles (2,750 kilometers) southwest of Buenos Aires near the southernmost tip of Patagonia. A team from IFAW worked closely with Consejo Agrario Provincial de Santa Cruz to take in and clean 224 of the oiled penguins. Due to very cold weather and low water temperatures, the birds had difficulty regaining their natural waterproofing.

    The song “Don’t Be Cruel” has been rewritten with the lyrics:

    Don’t Be Cruel – to Whales
     
    You know I won’t be found,
    Swimming in the deep blue sea,
    The Japanese are coming ‘round,
    They’re going to harpoon me.
    Don't be cruel to a whale that's true.

    Baby, it makes me sad
    My blubber’s not so tasty
    Why treat whales so bad?
    To risk extinction is crazy
    Don't be cruel…
    To a whale that's true.

    President Bush to Meet with Japan Prime Minister Koizumi: Conservationists say, “tell Japan to stop whaling”

    Publication Date: 
    Me, 06/28/2006
    Image: 

    Despite a global moratorium on whaling set by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in 1986, the government of Japan continues to hunt more than 1,000 whales a year as part of what it calls its government-run “scientific” whaling program. While the IWC has condemned Japan’s whaling practices, a loophole in its policy allows for lethal whale research. Japan sells the meat from its whaling operations to commercial restaurants and fish markets.
