Whales are fascinating animals that need your help. You can Despite all efforts to save whales, it may be too late for some species. Blue whales take so long to grow and reproduce that their populations may never recover from the whale hunts. Today's problems of pollution only further threaten the recovery of whale populations. A few populations may be increasing slightly, but their numbers remain very small. Scientists still have not seen a recovery of the blue whale population yet, even though all legal hunting of Blue whales ended over 30 years ago. In places where the populations were greatly reduced, the blues may have a hard time even finding mates.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
