Please find below a message we would ask you to circulate:


"The Belgian Ministry of Environment is happy to inform you about the
release of a folder on ship strikes with whales. Ship strikes are now a
recognized cause of mortality for whales globally. Every segment of the
maritime industry is concerned, as well as sailing boats. The folder
commissioned by Belgium includes advice to reduce the risk of collisions
with whales. It also provides the link to the ship strikes database
developed by the International Whaling Commission which offers an easy
to use interface for data entry. Ship strikes are a priority area of
work for the International Whaling Commission and other international
organizations. The folder is available in six languages and can namely
be used by ship strikes contact points, whale stranding networks
coordinators and maritime authorities.

Further information and printed copies of the folder can be obtained by
contacting Alexandre de Lichtervelde, Chair of the IWC Ship strikes
Working Group, at: Alexandre.delichtervelde at health.fgov.be".


Yours sincerely.
