The first international Whale Watching Workshop was held in Cape Town in March, with the view to properly manage whale-watching globally, reports Travel News Now.
The focus on the whale-watching management workshop was to ensure minimum negative impacts and sustainable tourism. The socio-economic benefits of whale watching were also covered.
Twelve countries attended the Workshop, which was supported by the International Whaling Commission. South Africa was selected as the host country due to its experience in whale watching and shark cage tourism.
