The International Whaling Commission has rejected a request from Denmark for a whaling quota for indigenous groups in Greenland.
The commission voted 34-25 to reject the request for a quota of 1,300 whales over the next six years.
The Thursday vote by the commission comes two days after it approved the renewal of bowhead whale quotas for indigenous subsistence whaling in Alaska and Russia and for St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. The six-year extension was approved at the IWC's annual meeting in Panama City.
