In the 1600’s, bowhead whales were hunted extensively for their blubber and oil. Their population numbers are believed to have dropped from 50,000 individuals to as low as 3,000 by the early 20th century. Although many conservation efforts have been put in place in order to protect the remaining amount of bowhead whales, they still have a long way to go. Their numbers are not currently believed to be declining, but many isolated populations are still classified as either critically endangered, endangered, or vulnerable.
