Global Ocean funded a 3 day meeting of whale conservation experts held in Paciano, Umbria, home to Dr Sidney Holt, and former home of David McTaggart, co-founder of Greenpeace International.

 

 

Here, campaigners in the whale-field discussed ways forward in terms of winning back the whales in a war we're currently losing from whaling.

 

In fact, the first international treaty to recognise the future interests of beneficiaries is the International Whaling Commission or I.W.C. One of its remits, as mentioned in its 1946 Preamble, is to, "safeguard whales for future generations".
