The annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) has come to an end with a few wins and losses.


Leaders at the meeting agreed to hold meetings every two years. They also refused Greenland and Denmark’s requests to raise indigenous people’s whale hunting quotas.

Angering many countries, South Korea announced that it would be making use of the regulation that allows whale hunting for scientific research. Japan has been hunting whales under this regulation since 1986 and it is one of the more controversial rules that many countries and environmentalists are seeking to change.

Additionally at the IWC meeting, the assembled countries denied a bid to take the whaling discussion to the UN General Assembly.
