Briefing on the IWC's Conservation Committee

Publication - 10 June, 2005
At its 55th Annual Meeting in 2003, the International Whaling Commission voted to establish a Conservation Committee. The adoption of Resolution 2003-1, the “Berlin Initiative on Strengthening the Conservation Agenda of the International Whaling Commission”, was strongly supported by IFAW and other NGOs. The establishment of the Conservation Committee is fully consistent with the first objective of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling, namely “the interest of the nations of the world in safeguarding for future generations the great natural resources represented by whale stocks”, as well as with the overwhelming part of the work devoted by the Commission to that objective during the previous 25 years.
