Horrible facts to face. Properly dispose of your waste, reduce your plastic use and support sustainable fisheries to help keep our oceans clean. Check out our “Animals in Distress” page to see what to do if you see a marine mammal in distress and who to call.

Entanglement in fishing gear is a major threat for whales. The exact number of entanglements per year is difficult to pinpoint as entanglements can happen far out at sea out of our sight. However, research suggests that over 300,000 whales and dolphins die from entanglement in fishing gear or marine debris every year. 💔
Since whales and dolphins are mammals, the need to breathe air. If they become tangled up in heavy gear, they cannot reach the surface to breathe. Injury and infection as heavy ropes bite through skin is also possible, as well as starvation since towing heavy fishing gear makes it difficult to chase prey and feed. ・
If you happen to see an whale that is entangled or in distress, the best thing to do is to report it and monitor until the help arrives. @whaletalesorg has a great guide on who to call for different countries as well as things we can do from home to help prevent future entanglements. Let’s protect whales together! 💙🐋
