Left out of many discussions about whales and other animals is the effect they have on the health of the ecosystem and how we are all dependent on each other.
Wolves in Yellowstone give healthier forests. Streams that have hatchery fish released are healthier when dead salmon are put on stream banks in the fall.

This short video explains what our hunting of whales to near extinction has had on the health of the oceans.
Thanks for your interest in and support of boating safety & the health of the Oceans.
