Bill Sponsorship: a resolution for the International Whaling Commission
Source: Resolution sponsored by 20 Senators
    Expresses the sense of the Senate that the United States:
  • at the 53rd Annual Meeting of the International Whaling Commission, should remain firmly opposed to commercial whaling,
  • should initiate and support efforts to ensure that all activities conducted under reservations to the Commission's moratorium or sanctuaries are ceased,
  • should oppose the lethal taking of whales for scientific purposes unless it is specifically authorized by the Scientific Committee of the Commission,
  • should seek the Commission's support for specific efforts by member nations to end illegal trade in whale meat, and
  • should support the permanent protection of whale populations through the establishment of whale sanctuaries in which commercial whaling is prohibited;
  • At the 12th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, should oppose all efforts to reopen international trade in whale meat or to downlist any whale population; and
  • should make full use of all appropriate diplomatic mechanisms, relevant international laws and agreements, and other appropriate mechanisms to implement these goals.
