Thanks, DJ and Claire!

Once again, we doff our ECO Panama hats to DJ Schubert of the Animal Welfare Institute for his efforts to lead and prod the ninety-plus representatives of pro-whale NGOs at this year’s IWC meeting.

DJ bends over backwards every year to help coordinate all efforts made for the whales at these meetings, and we all appreciate it.

And a special thanks to Claire Bass of the World Society for the Protection of Animals, too, for coordinating NGO speakers during the IWC meeting. These interventions have been uniformly excellent and represent our best foot forward at the IWC.

Thanks all!
