California Blue Whale Population Bounces Back from Whaling

I have never seen a Blue Whale in person, but I have seen Humpbacks, Fins and Minkes. You can see the scale comparisons, see them on TV and movie screens, but until you see a whale in person, you can never comprehend the sheer size, astounding grace and awesome presence of these beings.

This is only one population of Blue Whales, but it is such a relief to hear of a success story. The situation of the Blues were especially troubling  as they do not travel in pods. People worried that the lower numbers meant they would have a harder time finding mates and would slowly die out. I’m so glad to see that they are coming back.
