今日発表された世論調査の結果によると、アイスランド人のミンククジラ猟への支持は、わずか1年で5パーセント下落しました。

国際動物福祉基金 (IFAW)が委託したギャラップ調査によると、昨年の50.8パーセントに比べて、今回はアイスランド人の45.8パーセントがミンククジラ猟を支持すると答えました。こうした調査でアイスランド人の捕鯨への支持が50パーセント未満だったのは初めてです。

アイスランド人のナガスクジラ猟への支持も大幅に減少し、2016年の42パーセントに比べて、今回ナガスクジラ猟を支持すると主張した人は35.4パーセントでした。わずか4年前、同様の調査では、ミンククジラ猟を支持する人は65.7パーセント、ナガスクジラ猟を支持する人は56.9パーセントで、約20パーセント高かったことになります。

Global commitment secured to safeguard African wildlife at UN conference

IFAW (the International Fund for Animal Welfare) welcomed the commitment by world governments to increase protection for some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife: lions, leopards, chimpanzees and giraffes at the 12th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS),

 

However, this added protection, only came about after a historical first at CMS, when governments had to vote on species proposals, after failing to reach consensus.
