Permission requested to use information from the Barbados Sea Turtle Project
Activities to conserve endangered sea turtle populations in Barbados have been conducted by the Barbados Sea Turtle Project (BSTP) since 1987. The BSTP is a project of the University of the West Indies (Cave Hill Campus, Barbados) working in collaboration with the Fisheries Division of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Government of Barbados. The overall goal of the WIDECAST (Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network) affiliated project is to bring about the recovery of depleted populations of sea turtles in Barbados.

The International Whaling Commission (IWC) agreed to a moratorium on commercial whaling in 1982 because of its continuing failure to manage whales without their populations declining. Yet as early as 1937, when the first whale sanctuary was introduced, whales were already heavily over-exploited. The history of commercial whaling demonstrates that whales have never been hunted sustainably.
Not only are whales slow to reproduce and impossible to count accurately; whales also face a myriad of threats from other sources: pollution, climate change, ozone depletion and a range of other human activities. For these reasons Greenpeace believes there should be a permanent ban on all commercial whaling.
