At IFAW, we are hopeful that his tragic story will bring attention to the need to protect marine mammals in the wild. Through the Internet, books, photos, film and TV, more and more people can &ldquo;experience&rdquo; up-close views of wildlife in their natural habitat. Responsible whale watching and wildlife viewing provide opportunities to see animals in the wild exhibiting natural behaviors and can fortify the public commitment to conservation.&rdquo;</p> </div> Whales Whales Marine Mamals orca Sea World whale Fri, 06 Jan 2017 18:58:04 +0000 adintino 110215 at http://www.ifaw.org Look back 2016: Videos of our successes http://www.ifaw.org/international/news/look-back-2016-videos-of-our-successes <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/international/about-us/political-advocacy/erica-martin">Erica Martin</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Dec 30 2016</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="343" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/vs3td80Enb4" width="610"></iframe></p> <p>Our video team has been fortunate enough to chronicle so many of our successes over the years.
