FIN(BACK) WHALE — EN
Surviving Number: 50,ooo- 90,ooo  in oceans world-wide.Range: Virtually the entire ocean (Pacific and Atlantic)Primary Threats: 
Whaling (YES- the countries of Iceland, Greenland, and Japan still hunt whales today.)
Collisions with ships (surprisingly frequent)
Human noise: ships project immense sound waves under the water, often interfering with critical mating patterns, as whales use extremely loud, low vocalizations to communicate. 
Other:
Up to 88 feet long; second largest living animal.
between 1904-1975, nearly 750ooo whales were killed by hunters.
