Dominican Republic stands against whale hunting
Dominican Republic is among the 11 Latin American nations that now stand behind an international agreement calling for a ban on hunting these mammals. The agreement would only allow for controlled hunting, strictly for scientific and research purposes without killing the whales.
Representatives of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Uruguay signed the agreement in Buenos Aires, during a meeting to prepare for the annual International Whaling Commission conference in July in the United Kingdom.
