We hold the fate of whales in the palm of our hands 🐳
*
Many people consider whales to be sentient creatures; creatures that possess a higher cognitive ability to not only process information but also feel emotions🧠
*
It can be argued that some aspects their intelligence is close to that of humans, and other parts simply surpass it. Take biosonar and echo location for example. Their high intellect and highly complex social behariours are only now being realised🤔
*
Whale hunting; the practice of searching for, killing, and selling dead whale matter, has been practiced since the invention of the boat and this has had a massive impact on whale numbers. An estimated 16,000 whales have suffered inhamane deaths every year for 83 consecutive years. Let that sink in for a minute😟
*
In 1986 a memoratorium on commercial whaling was introduced in an effort to help reduce the impact of hunting whales. But through exploiting loopholes in regulations, hunters have continued to hunt whales under the guise of 'hunting for purposes of scientific research' when in actuality, 99% of them have been hunting to sell whale meat.😵
*
Since 1986, over 25,000 whales have been murdered legally for purposes of 'scientific research' though, no reputable scientific journals have ever published significant data that has originated from whale hunting😠
*
There now exists a plethora of non intrusive, and more importantly, non lethal technologies and methods for obtaining data. Some of which include tagging, photo ID, DNA profiling, and drone flight sampling👨‍🔬
*
Scientific research is obviously important if we are to understand and appreciate these beautifully complex, sentient creatures. But what is the point in doing so if whilst in the process of understanding these creatures, we kill all of them?🤔
*
We have the fate of whales in the palm of our hands. What will you do? *

Barbary Lion: they were lions in which the males had short, light, or dark manes, and once ranged in North Africa. They were animals of great significance, and they appeared frequently in Egyptian art, and statues. Though there are lions still existing today in captivity that may have some Barbary Lion DNA, the last true ones possibly died out in the wild sometime during the 1960s, thus rendering them regionally extinct. Overhunting is the reason

WHITE-TAILED DEER
(Odocoileus virginianus) 
White-tailed deer can greatly influence the composition of plant communities through their grazing, especially where they are abundant. In severe winters white-tailed deer can be responsible for girdling and killing large numbers of trees. #Whitetaileddeer are also important #prey #animals for a number of large #predators.

This species is commonly hunted for meat and sport. Early settlers and Native Americans also utilized whitetail #deer hides to make buckskin leather. #Whitetail heads are also commonly mounted on the walls of lodges and other places of outdoor recreation.

Whitetail deer are extremely common throughout their ranges and are the most numerous of the large North American #mammals. Precise estimates of their numbers have not been made, but there are probably somewhere between 8 and 15 million on this continent. Although their populations were decimated to the point of extinction in many areas at the turn of the century (due to #overhunting), they have recently reached their highest numbers due to the improvement of their habitat by the cutting of climax forests, providing them with a greater amount of brush and shrubs on which to forage.

The Whooping Crane is a beautiful, but underrated animal. It’s the tallest North American bird. Unfortunately, these birds are highly endangered due to habitat loss and over hunting. These precious white birds are a beautiful part of our culture and need to be saved. ♡did you know that there were only 15 Whooping Cranes left in 1940? ♡

This is The Western Black Rhinoceros. Which is a subspecies of The Black Rhinoceros that was declared extinct in 2011. It was once widespread in the savanna of sub-Saharan Africa, but its numbers declined due to poaching. In the 1930s preservation actions were taken to stop the dwindling numbers however due to lack of protection effort the numbers went down to the hundreds by 1980.  Poaching continued and by 2000 only 10 were alive and just 11 years later the ceased to exist.  Sadly this is becoming all to common for such rare and beautiful breeds because most people only care when its popular to care.  Stop poachers! Animals have as much right as we do to this Earth.

Lifestyle may have played role in near extinction of giant otter
An Amazon river otter species’ social lifestyle may have contributed to its near extinction by making it easier to find by early 20th century hunters in search of pelts, a stu3cdy published in PLOS ONE suggests. The giant otters live in large groups that include a single monogamous pair, and the group would scatter if one member of the pair was killed, researchers say.

Okay so reading this article about how elephant seals could have distinctive voices. Then I get to this one paragraph and I had to shake my head after I read it.
