Being established in 1986, on the day the International Whaling Commission prohibited whaling, it became a great victory of mankind and the hope of marine mammals – both cetaceans and their “neighbors” in the Ocean.
This moratorium is still remains in force and means, that the whales catching all over the world is no longer acceptable, also the whale meat trading is banned. Only few exceptions were made: for the purpose of aborigens and for science researches.
Some years ago it became the day of protection all species of marine mammals. February, 19 is the day of various ecological events and conferences.
And for the youngest viewers, we have prepared a video of "Encyclopedia for Children" about the inhabitants of a small audience of seas and oceans.
