Endangered Fin Whale!
A Majestic North Carolina Mammal
Where are our whales going?
The fin whale has been severely impacted worldwide by commercial whaling. Nearly 750,000 animals were killed in areas of the Southern Hemisphere alone between 1904 and 1979, and they are rarely seen there today. Their current status is unknown in most areas outside of the North Atlantic.
The actions that are taking place to save these creatures is actually very bleak. It saddens my heart to know that people are just "adopting whales" and sending donations
The fin whales are becoming endangered because even though commercial whaling has been banned nationwide, the amount of whales that were lost during that time was very drastic.
