Action Alert!  Peninsula Valdes, Argentina is the site of both breeding and
calving grounds for the endangered Southern right whale.  In the late 1970's
small scale tourist operations began in Valdes, and provincial regulations
were developed to try and manage the budding tourist industry.  By 1994 over
50,000 tourists left from Puerto Piramides (the only town located at Valeds)
to see the whales! Strandings of calves at Valdes were higher for the 1994
season than at any other time in the past and it is presumed that this is
tied into the increased tourist traffic.  Please write or fax the following
persons.
