Global Whaling Scientific Committee Meeting Starts

Scientists have gathered in Jeju, South Korea, for the annual discussion meeting on issues relating to the conservation of whales and dolphins.

The 65th meeting of the International Whaling Commission’s (IWC) Scientific Committee will feature more than 100 sessions over several weeks, with more than 200 scientists from across the globe present.

With the general IWC plenary meeting now moved to every two years, this scientific gathering is more important than ever. Amongst the topic for discussion will be the status of individual whale populations; impacts of hunting, entanglement in fishing nets and gear, and collisions with ships; health and disease; effects of noise pollution; implications of climate change; and oil spill response capacity.
