"Global Whaling Moratorium Stands as IWC Shelves Compromise Plan"

"AGADIR, Morocco, June 23, 2010 (ENS) - A controversial plan that would have meant the end of a 24-year long moratorium on commercial whaling was today put on ice for a year by the International Whaling Commission at its annual meeting. The 88 IWC member governments meeting in Agadir failed to agree on the proposed compromise between whale conservation nations and whaling nations that would have legalized whaling in return for bringing the hunt under IWC control."
