Contacting the IWC Secretariat

The IWC has a small Secretariat whose function is to administer the Commission and implement its programme of management, research and conservation.  Unfortunately, the Secretariat does not have the capacity to answer the hundreds of e-mails and letters we receive each week. 

For this reason, we work hard to ensure that the information on our website is comprehensive and up to date.  In addition to our regular website pages, we have compiled some frequently asked questions and current topics of interest.  Please make use of these information sources and be aware that staff may not always be able to respond to individual requests for additional information.  If you cannot find any information on your topic, you will be directed to a contact form and, time permitting, we will try to answer directly.


For members of the public, including school and college students - if your topic is not covered above, please click the help button in the bottom right corner of the page. PLEASE NOTE: your search will be more effective if you enter just one or two keywords
