The Blue Whale. With a length of up to 30m & a weight of up to 173 tons it is the largest animal known to have ever existed.
Unfortunately, it was hunted almost to extinction. There’s an estimated maximum of 25k left in our oceans.
Even now they’re still listed as Endangered & threatened largely by ship strikes, entanglement in fishing equipment, pollutants, plastics, microplastics and climate change.
These are beautiful creatures that deserve our respect and continued efforts to maintain and improve their quality of life.
