OMG!!! What happened to blue whales in California? Where are they going? The truth will shock you!
According to the latest survey it has been assumed that the population of California blue whales is going to resurge “near historic levels”. During the period of 20th century, the behemoth which is a sea creature had been hunted in such a way that reached the point of extinction; and the main reason behind this was the whalers. The blue whales of California are the only population of blue whales which needs to be recovered from the process of whaling.
1 Approx. 3,400 California blue whales had been trapped from 1905 to 1971 from the Gulf of Alaska
In current time Balaenoptera Musculus i.e. whales, beside the California coast, the Gulf of Alaksa and the eastern Pacific number about 2,200. According to the study the researchers claimed that this outline is 97% of the historical level. According to the recent data which is being published in the year, the thing which gets revealed that about 3,400 California blue whales had been trapped from 1905 to 1971.
If we will consider the 3,400 caught whales as compared to the 346,000 caught near Antarctica it will give an idea about the smaller population of California blue whales.
2 Blue whales were hunted in huge amount in the region of North Pacific
There are many people who hunt the whales for satisfying their basic needs. The basically hunt whales for oil, meat, and other profitable purposes. In the year 1966 hunting of whales get banned by the International whaling Commission. From the year 1905 to 1971, blue whales hunted in the huge amount in the region of North Pacific and today they are under IUCN i.e. International Union for Conservation of Nature, endangered species list.
3 Every year near about eleven blue whales get struck by ships which pass through the West Coast of the United States.
Every year near about eleven blue whales get struck by ships which pass through the West Coast of the United States. The people who are associated with the research believe that this death charge should be cut, they also declare that it will not guide to “overall population declines.”
With the completion of this study, the researchers squabble about the population of blue whales is nearly at its habitat edge, or haulage capacity. Most of us think that California population has achieved the capacity of what the system will take as far for the blue whales.
4 Conserve whales before they are history
It is very important for everyone to think over these issues so that they can go for conservation efforts and careful management. If every single person will think over it, then we can definitely bring positive results for the blue whales
