Why are Whales So Important? 

Whales play a huge part in our planet’s ecosystem, often gone unthought of or mentioned, they are the silent majestic creatures of the sea that help to maintain the Ying and Yang of the marine world. They have been subject to some severe danger over the years, their existence is becoming more stable now though due to a reduction in poaching so if you haven’t taken the time to go and see them for yourself now could be a perfect time.

Why are they so important?

Whales are actually at the top of the food chain and have a hugely important role to play in the maintenance of our marine world, they help to maintain other species of wildlife and help to clean the oceans for us. Without whale’s other species of animal would get over populated causing the extinction of numerous other types of marine wildlife, the Ying and Yang would be seriously out of balance and the marine world that we know today would be something of a distant memory.

What can we do to help them?

There is a lot that you can do to help them even down to making sure your litter is disposed of properly, sadly a lot of our litter ends up in the sea and whales aren’t able to sift through what is food and what is litter. They take humungous mouthfuls of water and food when they go to feed that they could quite literally be eating anything else that is floating around in the water. You could go and see them, there are a number of Sydney whale watching tour companies that can help you make a real day of it and see the wonderful creatures with your own eyes. You could join a Whale preservation club and do a little here and there to help make sure that our impact as humans is reduced, even a small effort can help, as the saying goes, “every little helps”.

Amazing creatures

When you get to see the whales with your own eyes for the first time you will appreciate just how spectacular they really are, despite their size they are extremely sociable characters. Whales are emotional creatures too, and although they don’t have ears that perk up so show their emotions or muscles that enable them to smile you can tell from their movements and body language that they are playful and friendly creatures, all be it you can’t pick them up and give them a stroke! If you haven’t seen them with your own eyes, then get out there and make a day of it.
