Whales
Different Types of Whales
How people affect whales
Whaling
The whaling industry has a big impact on the whales; about 2000 are killed each year. Japan does a lot of whaling, they come from Japan all the way to Australia. The Japanese use the meat for food such as sushi. Norway and Iceland also do a lot of whaling. I think that it is wrong to kill whales, because whales never/rarely do anything to us.

Killer Whales

Short video:
Greenpeace Project
The Killer whale weights up to 1200 lbs, it can be as long as 22 feet ( its size is relative to a school bus). The Killer whale eats carnivorous food such as; squid, otters, dolphins, whales, fish(cod) and other mammals. The killer whales are usually in groups which are called pods.
