  • History

    Despite their size, or perhaps because of it, Blue Whales have not fared well in recent centuries. The twentieth century was especially difficult, as whaling fleets wreaked havoc on Blue Whale populations, leading to their classification as an endangered species and worldwide legal protection. With commercial whaling outlawed, it’s expected that Blue Whale populations have at least stabilized. Perhaps the most amazing feature of these incredible creatures is their ability to communicate over long distances. The low-frequency sound waves they emit travel very quickly through water, and the sounds reach hundreds or even thousands of miles, possibly allowing Blue Whales to communicate over seemingly impossible distances. They’re certainly loud, with Blue Whale vocalizations measuring louder than a jet engine.

    Blue Whales are 70 feet long and eat 4-8 tons of krill every day. Blue Whales have stiff, thin plates in their mouths called baleen that filter krill from the water.
