facts about whales
Join us in protecting these magnificent creatures and their ocean home
Whales are the largest animals on Earth, with some species reaching lengths of over 100 feet and weighing up to 200 tons.
100 feet
Certain whale species, like the bowhead whale, can live for more than 200 years, making them some of the longest-lived mammals on the planet.
200 years
The main frequency of calls of all baleen whales living in the North Pacific Ocean is at the border of human audibility, between 10 and 20 Hz.

Whales face a myriad of threats that endanger their populations and well-being. Here are some of the dangers that whales encounter:
life threats to whales
Accidental entanglement in fishing gear, known as bycatch, is a major cause of mortality for many whale species.
Commercial Whaling
Despite international bans, some countries continue to engage in commercial whaling, leading to a significant decline in whale populations.
Climate Change
Rising sea temperatures, ocean acidification, and changes in food availability due to climate change can disrupt whale habitats and food sources.
Marine pollution, including plastic debris, oil spills, and chemical contaminants, poses a serious threat to whales through ingestion, entanglement, and habitat degradation.
Ship Strikes
Collisions with ships can result in serious injuries or fatalities for whales, particularly in busy shipping lanes.
Noise Pollution
Underwater noise from ships, sonar systems, and industrial activities can interfere with whale communication, navigation, and feeding behaviors.
Habitat Loss
Destruction and degradation of coastal and marine habitats, such as coral reefs and feeding grounds, threaten the survival of whale species.
Depletion of fish stocks due to overfishing can impact the availability of prey for whales, leading to nutritional stress and population declines.
Here are some suggested steps to help preserve whale populations:
