People used to think we would have whales forever, they are now learning that it is becoming less likely. In the past, people hunting whales was their biggest threat as no other sea creature could even challenge them. Today, it’s the loss of natural habitat and pollution that is killing them off. World Whale Day started in 1980 in Maui, Hawaii and has become an ongoing affair.
