WHALE WATCHING PUT ON WATCH -- Vancouver Province, p. A31, Charlie
Anderson, 14/02/99 -- Ed Lochbaum, marine mammal coordinator for the
federal department of fisheries and oceans, is convening a workshop in
Victoria in April bringing together ecotourism operators,
environmentalists, scientists, government and tourist agencies, because the
province's ecotourism industry is showing signs of having reached its
limit, both in size and its impact on the wildlife that is its bread and
butter. Operators have already drawn up a code of whale-watching conduct
that is far clearer and more strict than any U.S. or Canadian marine rules,
but the industry remains self-regulated.
