IWC’s 65th Meeting Receives Powerful Documentary from PWF Ecuador

“Migration towards Prosperity” was been presented to the 65th annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission and received an enthusiastic response. The video sends a strong message from Ecuador and the Buenos Aires Group that whales are a more beneficial as a living resource rather than being hunted.

The video documentary tells the story of how a small, poor fishing village in Puerto Lopez, Ecuador has built a vibrant economic future based on sustainable eco-tourism through whalewatching. Their efforts reenforce the IWC’s 5 year strategic whalewatching plan in favor of protecting whales and the ocean environment.
