Minke whaling season due to begin in Iceland

Minke whaling season is expected to start imminently in Iceland with whaling boats already on the move.

So far, Iceland’s self-allocated kill quota for minkes this season has not been announced. Last year’s quota allowed whalers to harpoon up to 239 minke whales, but in reality 29 were taken. The same quota was issued for the previous year with only around 10% of the catch limit, 24 minkes, killed.

Het IFAW Marine Mammal Rescue and Research team (voorheen het Cape Cod Stranding Network) komt al sinds december 1998 in actie bij strandingen van zeezoogdieren bij Cape Cod en zuidoost-Massachusetts. Recent kon het team de 4000ste hulpactie in de boeken noteren. Dit is een verslag van assistent-strandingscoördinator Jane Hoppe over een hulpactie ergens rond het bereiken van die mijlpaal.
