Tim Collins is a marine biologist who has spent the last 20 years studying the whales of the Northern Indian Ocean and tropical African waters. Much of this work has focused on elucidating the population status of humpback whales and coastal dolphins, and identifying conservation threats and solutions. As member of the International Whaling Commissions (IWC) Scientific Committee, he has also worked to ensure that national management strategies reflect the best available science, and acknowledge where data is deficient. Tim will briefly address the consequences of Japan’s withdrawal from the IWC this year, and how it may affect whale conservation in Africa.
