SOMEONE with real-life experience of the IWC is UKZN senior law lecturer Ed Couzens, who was a member of last year’s South African delegation which met in Anchorage, Alaska.

According to Couzens, increased involvement in the IWC of countries with no obvious interest in whaling — like Mongolia, Guinea-Bissau, Kiribati, and Austria — means that 81, or nearly half of the world’s states, are now members. “This means that a new range of motives and interests come into play at meetings,” he said.
