Whale jumping out the water

More from the world of animal welfare as we learn from the World Society for the Protection of Animals about how whales have been spared more time when a decision regarding a quota of 10 humpback whales to be hunted was postponed until June at a meeting of the IWC (International Whaling Commission).

The original request for the 'aboriginal subsistence whaling' quota was raised by Denmark on behalf of Greenland, who have done this for a third occasion.

The vote was due on the 5th of March but it was unable to be passed as not enough IWC member organisations were present at the meeting in Florida.

WSPA were at the meeting and their campaigners were fearing the worst - their investigation in 2008 revealed the way in which Greenland misuses its whaling quotas - selling products for commercial purposes.

This gave Commissioners valid concerns about how they were involved in the commercialisation of whale products that had also caused the proposals to be rejected in the previous two years.
