Improve Protection from Hunting/ Whaling/ Culling


We have very little knowledge about the local populations of whales and dolphins and the complex roles they may play in keeping our marine ecosystem, including our fishery stock, healthy. We also have very little knowledge about the pressures we may be placing on these animals through other human activities, therefore it is unwise to damage local populations for consumption or under the unproven impression that they may be the cause of declining fish stock.

In Trinidad and Tobago, we believe that we have no problem with whaling and little to no problem with hunting of small cetaceans and culling of cetaceans. However, we do feel that it is wise to ensure that this is and remains the case rather than assume that there is no problem. To do this, CCARO aims to determine if whaling, hunting or culling is occurring locally, what are the causes if any and what we can do in collaboration with the people involved, to reduce these activities if they are occuring.
