Working to steer whales meeting into calmer waters

On the eve of the annual meeting of the conservation body set up to protect whales – the International Whaling Commission (IWC) – there are fears this year’s meeting could be over before it begins.

As delegates from around the world gather in Panama City, Panama for the opening of the 64th IWC meeting on Monday, there is concern that this year’s meeting could be sabotaged from the outset by Japan and the rest of the pro-whaling bloc.
