The International Whaling Commission (IWC) is the plan that’s regulating whaling and addressing the threats to whales, dolphins and porpoises in our ocean like shipping, climate change, and bycatch. In the process of doing this, WWF (World Wildlife Fund) is trying to push the IWC into reducing these threats. It was heard that WWF partnered with Natural Resource Defense Council and Ocean Conservation Research to raise awareness as well. In the help of marine animals like the beluga and shares the same story as the other marine species who depend on sound for a living and their disabilities of the underwater noise pollution.

CLIMATE CHANGE *DANGER* *DANGER* *DANGER*

Males use their tusk to, in order to determine social rank, and compete for females. There isn't really any competition, jonly if it has to do with mating.

HUNTING NARWHALS IS ILLEGAL.

Narwhals are the biggest victims of climate change. For example, they would need to die to the depths of 6,000 feet to feed on halibut. Their habitat is in areas with 99% ice cover. And if that ice melts, their predators will have easier excess to getting to them - such as polar bears and orcas.

And in my opinion, there isn’t any other plan that we could do than this. This is the best plan yet - considering we are still using it now. The only other option is to try and separate the narwhals into a different area, and observe how they act and compare it to before. However, you would have to take in other species as well, and it’s not going to be easy. So, the best thing to do in my opinion is to go with the WWF plan. However, we could always start a petition against commercial whaling, and see how far we could get from there. All in all, we could always tell the senators to ACT against global warming.
