SriLankan Airlines announces new policy against the carriage of wild animals

WDC partner, SriLankan Airlines has announced a new policy refusing to transport any animals caught in the wild. The policy was developed in response to WDC’s campaign to stop wild whales and dolphins, taken during the brutal drive hunt in Japan, being flown by airlines to aquaria around the world.

The new policy is the latest development in a series of whale and dolphin related initiatives SriLankan Airlines is supporting. Project BLUEprint is an exciting new partnership between WDC, SriLankan Airlines (and other tourism partners including Jetwing Hotels and John Keells Hotels), to study, celebrate and protect blue whales in Sri Lankan waters.
