whaling should be banned because they are Beautiful creatures that are becoming extinct because of us humans be on the other hand they are used for a lot of things. Very few whales of every kind are left. We should protect them.

Not hurt them.

teeth- piano keys,buttons,jewelry

sinews- used for tennis raquets


oil-sperm whale oil taken from bone and skin used for high grade alcohol,shoe cream, lipstick,ointment,crayons, candles, fertilizer, soap, and animal feed

skin- belts, shoes, bags

baleen- umbrellas, horse whips, shoehorn

We can see whales do have a practical use when it comes to using their remnants to create objects to aid us.

Anti-whaling campaigners say that whales are amongst the most intelligent of mammals and it is therefore morally wrong to kill them for food. Most of the research on mammal intelligence has been carried out on Bottle nose dolphins and while they scored highly in some research, it is nearly impossible to duplicate these tests for whales, probably due to the fact their numbers are so small.

With that said, the campaigners must have little evidence as to a whale's intelligence.

I will try to be unbiased in my answer, whaling should be banned because it is causing whale to become endangered and could lead to their extinction, this would be bad because whales fill a niche in the ocean that if left open by their extinction, could have drastic and harmful effects on the ocean's ecosystem

Why do the Japanese hunt whales?

== == == == The official reason that Japan gives for whale hunting is "scientific research". They say the only way to determine the whale's age is to kill it. The purpose of the "research" is to prove that whale populations have improved enough to allow commercial whaling which was banned by the International Whaling Commission in 1986. However, the whale meat is sold as a delicacy. It is likely this is the real reason for the whale hunting. In recent years activists have disrupted whale hunting in the arctic.
