Future of Whaling

The International Whaling Committee (IWC), the international committee made of 88 countries, recently came up with a proposal to allow commercial whaling. Japan, Norway, and Iceland have continued whaling despite their membership with the IWC. The proposed plan would allow some recessions from Japan, but for long-term whaling rights.
The proposal will be considered by all members of the IWC in June.
