Dear Glen,
The main reason for the decline in blue whales has been commercial whaling;
since this whale is now protected from exploitation.
Today, pollution, especially oil pollution, is an important ennemy to the
blue whales. Yes, the killer whale or Orca is an ennemy to the blue but
there is only a few attemps reported of Orcas trying to kill a blue whale.
