The Whale's Song

Industrial whaling began in the 17th century, by the 20th factory ships & 'whale harvesting' developed. By the 1930s, more than 50,000 whales were killed annually. In 1986 the International Whaling Commission (IWC) banned commercial whaling.

Despite the ban some countries refused to stop whaling
Pro-whaling countries, Japan-Norway-Iceland, want to hunt certain whale stocks. Anti-whaling countries & environmental groups oppose lifting the ban - unless whaling is stopped, whales could become extinct.

Now, whales are mysteriously dying - during January 2016, 29 sperm whales got stranded and died across Europe. It seems they became lost in shallow waters, but why? Were they affected by something humans did – busy shipping lanes, seismic testing, military noise or the ‘invisible’ threats of toxic chemicals in the seas...
