    How many types of whales are there?

    Reply:
    Dear Jiorgia and Cameron from Perth Australia. There are 80 known species
    of whales (porpoises, dolphins, whales). Please reference WhaleNet¹s
    extensive information database to learn more about whales at
    http://whale.wheelock.edu/whalenet_index.html.

    Cheers!
