Subject: Endangered Whales

	I did a quick search of the "ASK" archives, as I like to do, and I
found some great information. The whales in our oceans are either
endangered or threatened. Due to whaling, populations of some whales such
as Right, Humpback, and Blue whales were endanger of becoming extinct.
Fortunately, whaling has been greatly reduced, allowing these and other
population of whales to increase. Whaling still exists today but,
hopefully someday that will change.
I hope I answered your question. Should you have any more drop me a note.
