And Many Many Thanks to Panama

Many delegations have offered the government and people of Panama their thanks for the hospitality and friendship shown at this week’s International Whaling Commission.

ECO would like to add our thanks to our kind and generous hosts.

Panama specifically asked to host this year’s IWC meeting in order to showcase Panama’s whale watching opportunities offshore, so we encourage our friends from around the world in delegations and NGOs to consider a whale watch trip or two while staying in this beautiful country. And don’t forget the fabulous rainforest preserves!
