South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary

Whales Need Sanctuary!

The 2012 annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission to be held July 2 to 6 in Panama will consider various whale conservation proposals including the creation of a South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary.  This new IFAW briefing makes the case for securing this sanctuary and a better future for whales through cooperation, research and responsible whale watching!
