韩国对伪科学说不,已确认采用非致命性的鲸类研究代替“科研”捕鲸

 

        韩国已经确认采用非致命性的鲸类研究计划,来代替残忍的所谓“科研”捕鲸。

        自去年7月韩国政府在巴拿马首都巴拿马城召开的国际捕鲸委员会(IWC)年会上宣布了其计划开始实施所谓的科研捕鲸之后,韩国政府收到了来自世界各地数万公众发来的抗议邮件,其中很多人是IFAW的支持者。

        递交正式提案的最后期限是12月3日,在这一天,韩国政府并没有发出官方声明。而IWC目前已经正式确认,韩国决定转而进行非致命性的研究。

        IFAW也表示愿意尽全力帮助韩国开展人道的非致命性研究。IFAW有一组全身心投入的科学家和船员驾驶IFAW“鲸之歌”号科考船在全球各地开展鲸类研究。在非入侵性鲸类研究领域,IFAW已具备丰富的经验和专业知识。

À l’heure où la plupart d’entre nous s’apprêtent à passer les fêtes en compagnie de leurs amis et de leur famille, les médias ont évoqué l’incursion de braconniers lourdement armés en Afrique centrale, faisant resurgir dans mon esprit l’image des familles d’éléphants massacrées que j’ai pu voir l’année dernière au Camer

The Japanese whaling fleet has left port for Antarctica to train its harpoons on around 1,000 whales.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW www.ifaw.org) is disappointed that the Japanese government continues to prop up this needless slaughter with taxpayers’ money which would be better spent supporting the country’s whale watching industry.
