I painted this illustration of a whale to raise awareness and provide a striking message. There are 13 species of great whale and several species of smaller whales, despite decades of legal protection, six of the 13 great whale species are at risk of extinction.
Like many marine animals, whales are at risk of ‘bycatch’ – accidental entanglement in fishing gear, which can cause injury, infections, starvation and drowning. The main cause of decline in whale numbers historically was industrial whaling – killing whales for their meat and oil. It drove some species to the brink of extinction. Climate change is an emerging threat which is also affecting fish stocks. However it will also cause other major changes within our oceans.
