World Whale Day
World Whale Day reminds us of the challenges faced in our oceans across the globe. Observed annually on the third Sunday in February, World Whale Day celebrates these noble sea mammals.
Some of the most fascinating creatures live in our big blue oceans. Whether the mammoth blue whale or the enchanting narwhal, whales create mystery wherever they go. For centuries they’ve been hunted for their meat and oil, but today they face pollution and loss of habitat. World Whale Day raises awareness of the growing need to protect these diverse and majestic mammals.
