What is a Whale?

WhaleWhales collectively inhabit all the world's oceans and number in the millions, with annual population growth rate estimates for various species ranging from 3-13%. For centuries, whales have been hunted for meat and as a source of raw materials. By the middle of the 20th century, however, industrial whaling had left many species seriously endangered, leading to the end of whaling in all but a few countries.

Greenpeace whaling campaigns

Greenpeace whaling campaignsOverexploit, cheat, deplete. The cycle of greed behind the global whaling industry drove one whale population after another toward oblivion.
It is still not known if some species will ever recover, even after decades of protection.
