Sadly, the International Whaling Commission (which I’m assuming is what you meant by IWC) has not been all that protective of whales in its policies. It banned commercial whaling back in the 80s, but still allowed Japan, Iceland, and Norway to engage in “scientific” whaling which is an obvious dodge. The IWC also does next to nothing to protect small cetaceans such as dolphins. A new policy proposed would allow for whaling but under very strict limits, which pleases neither whalers nor environmentalists. The quotas in this policy would be even stricter than whaling countries’ own self-imposed quotas, but the idea of legally allowing whaling is extremely distateful to many.
