The Endangered Blue Whale
By: Dustin Graf
How many blue whales are left in the world?
There is between 1300 and 2000 blue whales in the world.
Why are they becoming extinct?
Part of the reason is that they are being hunted by the Japanese claiming that there doing it for research but they kill hundreds a year and it is a special cuisine in Japan. There habitats are being destroyed by people and global warming.
This is a dead blue whale that washed up on the shore after colliding with a ship and dying.
This is a spear gun that the Japanese use to kill whales.
This is a dead whales fin that got caught and torn in garbage.
What can we do to help?
We need to have the Japanese stop whaling because they are killing hundreds of whales each year. We need to stop dumping our waste into the oceans. We also need to protect the Blue whales habitat.
