The Caribbean countries that helped Japan win a narrow victory at the International Whaling Commission could face a backlash from environmentally concerned tourists.
The six countries, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines, joined 27 other states in voting to end the moratorium on hunting whales, the Los Angeles Times reported. The resolution passed 33-32, but that vote does not actually end the hunting ban.
Are we trying to portray the Caribbean as eco-friendly or are we’re very much into conservation? These are the questions we should ask ourselves.
