Do People Hunt Blue Whales?

The Japanese are still whaling, so even though the Blue Whale is a proctected animal, it still might be hunted by Japanese whalers. Maybe not intentionally, but they certainly won't throw it back, and even if they did they whale would probably bleed to death. That's the sad facts. :(

How big was the largest tsunami ever recorded?

The tallest tsunami ever recorded was at Lituya Bay, Alaska. July 7th, 1958, 1638 foot tall waves that were caused by a huge ice/rock fall. This is twice the size of the Eiffel Tower.

Further details: The highest naturally-occurring tsunami ever recorded occurred in Lituya Bay, a large inlet on the coast of Alaska. It is believed that an earthquake of either 7.9 or 8.3 on the Richter Scale, occurred along a nearby faultline, part of the Pacific Rim of Fire. Around 40 million cubic yards of dirt and glacier were shaken loose from a mountainside at the head of the Bay, resulting in a tsunami (series of waves), the highest of which reached over 500 metres. Although the only witnesses to the event were a couple of fishing boats, the height was able to be determined by scientists finding the high water mark, where the water reached its highest point on the nearby land.

It was fortunate that the area was uninhabited, or else the effects could have been even more devastating. Higher tsunamis are believed to have occurred without human witnesses, so their heights have not been recorded.

When will blue whales go extinct?

Blue Whale populations have declined significantly due to extensive and uncontrolled hunting. Blue whale hunting was banned in 1966 by the International Whaling Commission. But, by 1970 330,000 blue whales had been caught & killed in the Antarctic, 33,000 in the rest of the Southern Hemisphere, 8,200 in the North Pacific, and 7,000 in the North Atlantic. The largest original population, in the Antarctic, had been reduced to 0.15% its original count.

Now that the hunting of these giant animals is banned, their numbers has started to increase and I don't think they will go extinct.

Where does blue whale live?

Blue whales are present in almost all the oceans. However, they are mainly spotted in the southern hemisphere. They prefer to stay in the deep waters and sometimes in the coastal waters. Warm water is not something that the blue whales prefers to stay in. Cold and temperate waters serve as an ideal habitat for these large sea mammals. The blue whales spotted in the seas of Canada, are those that dwell in the northern hemisphere. The Gulf of California and the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada are among the other blue whale habitats. Maximum number of blue whales are spotted in the North Atlantic Ocean, while some are also spotted in the northern Indian Ocean. They are also concentrated in small areas, to the south of the Madagascar. The Davis strait, between Baffin island and Greenland, is among the other regions where the blue whales have been sighted.

Why are blue whales endangered?

Due to extensive and uncontrolled hunting. Blue whale hunting was banned in 1966 by the International Whaling Commission. But, by 1970 330,000 blue whales had been caught & killed in the Antarctic, 33,000 in the rest of the Southern Hemisphere, 8,200 in the North Pacific, and 7,000 in the North Atlantic. The largest original population, in the Antarctic, had been reduced to 0.15% its original count.

Humans have been the biggest and most dangerous predators of the blue whales. With large ships and powerful harpoons humans killed these gentle giants in thousands. By 1970 330,000 blue whales had been caught & killed in the Antarctic, 33,000 in the rest of the Southern Hemisphere, 8,200 in the North Pacific, and 7,000 in the North Atlantic. The largest original population, in the Antarctic, had been reduced to 0.15% its original count.

Because in 2002, the estimated population was between 5,000 and 12,000. That is not that many and once they are gone, they are gone forever.
