Whales Endangered and Conservation

It does seem ironic that whales have no natural predators, yet they continue to be endangered.
Sadly, this is due to man and the issues that we have created for them.
Between hunting them for food and sport and destroying their natural environment they are in trouble.
Thankfully conservation efforts are in place to help get their numbers back up.
You have to remember that whales don’t reproduce until they are from 7 to 10 years of age.
Therefore the concern is that we can’t immediately increase their numbers. Therefore we have to stop them from plummeting even lower.
The World Wildlife Foundation, known as WWF, is a leader in such efforts.
They definitely want to make sure that people are aware of what the full situation is.
They continue to work with military too because some of their efforts with sonar have lead to problems for whales and they want it to be corrected.
