Whale Day Why is it important to celebrate it?

Whales and dolphins are the most well-known cetaceans, either because some hold the first place as the largest animal on the planet or because others are majestic and friendly, but are they important enough to have their own world day?

The International Whaling Commission (IWC) decreed July 23, 1986 as the World Day Against Whaling. World Day Against Whaling, today, it is recognized as World Whale and Dolphin Day. World Whale and Dolphin Day.

This initiative was carried out so that countries such as Norway or Japan would not continue hunting these mammals with the excuse of researching them and then selling their meat in supermarkets, since they are species that have a limited reproductive capacity and their captive breeding does not give good results.


Climate change and its consequences

Sea temperatures are increasingly rising due to greenhouse gases, increased carbon dioxide emissions and the large amount of plastic in our oceans.

and the large amount of plastic

accumulating in the oceans.


All this causes dolphins and whales to be severely affected, survival rates have dropped by as much as 12% since 2011.. As a result, some of these species are in danger of extinction.

The global average temperature has been rising every decade since 1850 -the year measurements began-. The great scholars dedicated to measuring and learning how the climate behaves consider humans and their activities to be the main cause of the increase in the earth’s temperature.

The upside is that we are also the solution to this problem. With the necessary awareness, dedication, and effort

we can contribute to improving the condition of our environment.


How can we help?

Mainly by reducing the amount of plastics in daily use. Opting for an alternative


products -such as bamboo- we will be able to reverse this great mass of non-biodegradable objects and counteract the increase in global temperatures.

Not consuming any product -whether cosmetic or not- that may contain additives of animal origin, more specifically from whales, which are hunted for the purpose of using their body parts as oils, cosmetics or in perfumery.

The best news to receive is that, as of 2018, the whale and dolphin population has increased despite being on the brink of extinction.

With everyone’s help we will be able to enjoy these marine mammals for many years to come. Together we can do wonders!
