    http://www.earth-touch.com. Know the facts and join the debate about commercial whaling! The controversial practice, banned since 1986, devastated whale populations in the past and pushed a number of species to the brink of extinction.

    This nature video was released ahead of a 2010 meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to debate the lifting of the whaling ban. Although the ban remained in place, thousands of whales still die each year due to regulatory loopholes and other threats.
