A New Resolution To Save The Whales

Australia and New Zealand recently proposed a resolution against lethal whaling, tightening a loophole that allowed whaling to take place under the guise of “scientific research.” With the resolution being adopted at the International Whaling Commission meeting in Slovenia, it looks like the first positive step towards the livelihood of whales, after many inefficient attempts.

Could this be the beginning of the end for whaling, or is it merely another attempt at preventing the inevitable? Today we were joined by Indi Hodgson-Johnston, Antarctic Law and Policy Researcher at the University of Tasmania to answer this and more.
