Dear whale.wheelock.edu ,
I LOVE your website SOOOO much! It tells you all about whales and in a
friendly understandable way!
But I have a few questions about whales (they've been my favorite animal
ever since I saw a whaling video) that I'v been afraid to ask.....Which
countries still whale hunt and and what are they made into?
Thank You for listning to a weird little girl who lives
no where near the ocean!
Japan and Norway, and soon also Iceland, still hunt whales, plus there are
some small-scale native hunts in Alaska and the Caribbean. Japan also herds
dolphins to the beach to kill them. They are used for food. I don't know of
any other products they are used for. In the early days of whaling the
baleen was used for many products, like corset stays and buggy whips, and
the oil was used for lubrication and lamps.
