In this report, we recount the marine mammal crisis that led to its creation, the structure of the act, and the many examples of success for whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals in our waters because of these common sense protections. Just like these precious animals, the MMPA itself could be in danger from unrestrained industry influence if we don&#39;t act to save it on behalf of these animals and places they call home.</p> </div><p><a href="http://www.ifaw.org/united-states/resource-centre/living-success-story-marine-mammal-protection-act" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Conservation Wildlife trade Political advocacy Whales Seals Seals Whales dolphins marine MMPA seals whales Reports, Papers, and Proceedings Sun, 12 Nov 2017 18:58:53 +0000 sdemo 112883 at http://www.ifaw.org World leaders deliver a big win for lions, leopards, whale and blue sharks http://www.ifaw.org/united-states/news/world-leaders-deliver-big-win-lions-leopards-whale-and-blue-sharks <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/united-states/about-us/whales/matt-collis">Matt Collis</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">Oct 27 2017</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p><img alt="" src="http://d2mlnkprj9wd81.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/wordpress/image/cms_migratory_species_blue_shark.jpg" style="width: 610px;
