Competitors at the City2Surf run.I first started running in 2005, during my studies for my masters in Marine Mammal Science while living in North Wales, UK.

In fact, I’m not sure that it could really be described as running in those days, as I was barely able to jog a few hundred metres before collapsing in a heap!

Ports urged to reject attempts to use UK as route for the bloody trade in whale

UK ports are being urged to take a stand against whaling amid speculation they could be targeted as a transport route for meat from whales slaughtered in Iceland or Norway.

Meat from the bloody whaling industry could potentially pass through several UK ports on its way to Japan where much of it ends up in storage or sold cheaply for products such as dog food.

最新鋭のクジラ調査船が夏の地中海での調査への出港を前に、この週末モナコにいかりを下ろしました。

昨日(日曜)、地球のクジラを護るという重要な使命に再び赴く前の国際動物福祉基金(IFAW - www.ifaw.org)の「ソング・オブ・ザ・ホエール」号を、モナコ大公アルベール2世が訪問しました。

クジラがかつてないほど多くの脅威に直面する中、IFAWの専用船は無害な方法で世界各地のクジラ類を調査しています。6月下旬から9月中旬にかけて「ソング・オブ・ザ・ホエール」号はまず北エーゲ海で調査を行なってからエジプト海域に移動し、さらに必要に応じてトルコ南岸とキプロス周辺の追加調査を行う予定です。

地元の学生が「ソング・オブ・ザ・ホエール」号の専門家チームに合流します。

IFAWのグローバル・クジラプログラムを率いるパトリック・ラマージはこう話します。「海洋環境で暮らすクジラの研究は、今のこの世の中で最も興味深い調査の1つです。」
