IWC’s 65th meeting receives powerful visual message

Field Report - Ecuador

IWC

“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.
