Tropical Marine Ecology Group
Research in the Tropical Marine Ecology Group ranges broadly from pure behavioural ecology to applied ecology and conservation problems. Most of our work focuses on organisms living in or issues pertaining to tropical coastal ecosystems, particularly coral reefs in the Caribbean. Although we mainly do empirical, field-based research, we often combine this with theory development, within the group or through collaborations

The International Whaling Commission (IWC) agreed to a moratorium on commercial whaling in 1982 because of its continuing failure to manage whales without their populations declining. Yet as early as 1937, when the first whale sanctuary was introduced, whales were already heavily over-exploited. The history of commercial whaling demonstrates that whales have never been hunted sustainably.
Not only are whales slow to reproduce and impossible to count accurately; whales also face a myriad of threats from other sources: pollution, climate change, ozone depletion and a range of other human activities. For these reasons Greenpeace believes there should be a permanent ban on all commercial whaling.
