Nicknamed “razorback” because of its distinct ridge, the Fin whale is the second largest animal on Earth. But because of rampant commercial whaling, these gigantic mammals are on the endangered species list. Between 1904 and 1979, over 750,000 whales have been killed in the Southern Hemisphere alone. Though the International Whaling Commission has issued a moratorium in the commercial hunting of whales, Iceland, Norway and Japan have resumed whale hunting.

These will die off if we cannot get the names enough. Thank you
