UPDATE Pilot Whales restrand on Lieutenant's Island in Wellfleet, MA.

Publication Date:

The whales stranded once again with the falling tide and veterinary experts determined the animals were too weak to survive another rescue attempt. By late afternoon, the difficult decision was made to euthanize the remaining animals and end their suffering.

All members of IFAW's Emergency Relief Team would like to extend our sincere thanks for the tremendous outpouring of support we received during this difficult event.

The stranded whales were discovered at six o’clock in the morning as low tide was approaching on the North side of Cape Cod.

More than 100 volunteers worked for hours pouring water over the animals and covering them in wet towels to keep them cool during the near record heat. 46 of the whales were ultimately returned to the water. Nine whales died during the stranding.

Japan urged to abandon outdated whaling policy

Publication Date: 
Fri, 09/30/2011

Following Japanese media reports today that whaling will continue with around US$27 million in additional government security budget to protect the fleet, Patrick Ramage, Director of IFAW’s Global Whale Programme, said: “I'd bet this is whaling's last gasp. The industry is out of gas and crashing. This move is more about pride than profit, more about politics and prerogatives of the Japanese Fisheries Agency than it is about public support.”
