General Characteristics

Whale Species

Of all the earth's animals, none is more fascinating than the whales, members of the order Cetacea. Although whales spend their lives in the sea, they are warm-blooded mammals. And just like land mammals, whale calves nurse on their mothers' milk. One species of whale, the great Blue whale , is the largest creature that has ever lived. Larger than the largest of ancient dinosaurs, blue whales can grow to be more than 100 feet long and weigh more than 150 tons. Of course, not all whales are as large as the great blue. The Pilot whale, for example, grows to about 28 feet. And those popular members of the whale family, porpoises, range from 3 to 13 feet in length.

The world's great whales are in trouble.
Despite an international moratorium on commercial whaling, two countries, Japan and Norway, are continuing to hunt whales for profit. These nations are aggressively campaigning to lift the ban on whaling. With a return to large scale whaling just a hair's breadth away, we urgently need to take action to stop Japan and Norway's efforts. Greenpeace is working on many fronts, fighting to stop commercial whaling through political work, public outreach and by taking non-violent direct action against the whalers at sea. We need your help! 15 November 2002

B E L U G A W H A L E T E K Traditional Ecological Knowledge of Beluga Whales
An Indigenous Knowledge Pilot Project in the Chukchi and Northern Bering Seas Henry P. Huntington, Ph.D., and Nikolai I. Mymrin
Inuit Circumpolar Conference Traditional Ecological Knowledge (or TEK) is a system of understanding one's environment. It is built over generations, as people depend on the land and sea for their food, materials, and culture. TEK is based on observations and experience, evaluated in light of what one has learned from one's elders. People have relied on this detailed knowledge for their survivalthey have literally staked their lives on its accuracy and repeatability. TEK is an important source of information and understanding for anyone who is interested in the natural world and the place of people in the environment. Many scientists recognize the value of working with people who live in an area and who have great insight into the natural processes at work in that area. While the scientific perspective is often different from the traditional perspective, both have a great deal to offer one another. Working together is the best way of helping us achieve a better common understanding of nature. When a native hunter and a scientist discuss wildlife biology, maps can be a great starting point. Maps are familiar to both, and information they mark on a map can be easily understood in both cultures. The maps can spark a long conversation, and they are a good reference point throughout an interview, especially as migration routes, feeding areas, ice patterns, currents and other geographic information is added, compared and discussed further.

The blue whale is the largest whale. They may grow up to 100 feet and weigh as much as several elephants. The harbor porpoise is one of the smallest whales. They grow to only about 5 feet in length. Killer whales are the largest dolphins. They get their name because they sometimes eat other, larger whales. A humpback whale may eat up to a ton of food every day. Whales can't breathe through their mouths. The mouth is connected directly to the stomach. They breathe through their blow holes, which go to the lungs. A sperm whale can hold its breath for at least an hour. The voice of the blue whale is one of the deepest voices on the planet. It is so powerful that it can travel for perhaps a hundred miles underwater. The blubber on a whale which lives in very cold water may reach up to 20 inches thick. It is used to insulate the whale and also as an emergency food store.
