Iceland?s Whaling Commissioner has been making headlines recently with his controversial thoughts on tourism in relation to whales. Iceland has practiced Whaling for many years despite the protests they have fought from many countries around the world, and now Iceland?s Whaling commissioner is upsetting many tourism boards with his claims that many tourists who enjoy whale watching in Iceland?s waters will later enjoy whale meat in a local restaurant. His statements imply that Whaling and Tourism go hand-in hand. Many whale watching tours all over the world work hard to educate tourists on how we as humans can and should protect whales. So, Iceland?s Whaling Commissioners views are upsetting many Whale Watching businesses that fight hard for the protection of whales. TravAddict and it?s partners consider sustainable tourism to be very important, and we encourage our travelers to travel with companies that offer protection to any animals involved in tourism.
