People killed at least 300,000 humpback whales from the 1700s to 1950. They did this for their meat and blubber. There is now some really good news. In the South Atlantic, the population of humpback whales is now 25,000. That’s 93% of how much it was before the 1700s. In the 1700s, it was 27,000. This is happening because in the 1980s, people were banned from killing humpback whales. These new counts were done by people on ships. Humpback whales do still face some challenges.
This is breaking news. I chose this article because I love animals. The information in this article is important to the world because humpback whales are nature. This relates to when we learned about animals in first grade.
