OVERFISHING IS ENDANGERING SPECIES SURVIVAL

The Humpback whale is listed on the Federal Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants List, along with other whales, due to overfishing by whalers.  Recovery for this species is very slow.  The whale in this image is lunging out of the water, which is a normal activity called breaching - or is it trying to get away from the pollution?

Whales communicate with each other under water and the Humpback is noted for its melodic songs.  Underwater sounds are very important to cetaceans and many species, and too much human noise can disorient and endanger them.
