I have to say that the UK Government has traditionally been great on protecting whales on the high seas. Indeed, when it comes to anti-whaling the UK is one of the best countries around when it comes to taking on Japan, Iceland and Norway at the IWC annual meetings
This week has been a busy one for WDCS, and for me personally, and it’s only Wednesday so far.
There is much sea life about, we saw a pod of bottlenose dolphins while out whale watching. Vale saw a manta ray come right into the shallows. Of course, the water is so clear and full of life around the reefs, it just calls out to divers from around the world.
WDCS is beginning our second year of research in the Turks and Caicos and with this second year, we are expanding our research to cover a larger area for a greater time and expanding our activities. This expansion is in large part possible due to a generous grant from Change Happens Foundation.
Our congratulations go out to the Costa Rican President Oscar Arias and the people of Costa Rica for making a strong statement against all cetacean hunts.
