Antarctica

why we need to STOP killing whales

Anterctica whales

The whales covered here are those species most commonly found in Antarctic waters being the Right, Blue, Sei, Humpback, Minke, Fin, Sperm and Killer whales.

There are also some other smaller and rarer species such as the Southern Bottlenose whale (up to 9.75m long), Arnoux's beaked whale (to 7.5m) and the southern hourglass dolphin, the smallest Cetacean in Antarctic waters at 1.5-2m long.

Whale statistics - these are very variable indeed. If you do any research on whales on the internet, or in books, you will find that there are wide differences in the recorded length and mass of the various species. Lengths are generally more reliable than weights as it easy to measure the length of a whale, from whalers records or from photographs against objects of known size.
