IWC Plan to Legalise Whaling

The International Fund for Animal Welfare announced that the International Whaling Commission has released a new plan to legalize commercial whaling.


The proposal, if adopted, would overturn the 1986 ban on commercial whaling by authorising whaling by Norway, Iceland, and Japan.

It would also legalise Japan’s whaling in an internationally recognised whale sanctuary around Antarctica, grant new rights to Japan, Iceland, and Norway to kill whales for commercial purposes.
