Whales are marine mammals that are generally at or near the top of the food chain in their local ecology. Whale conservation comprises the set of research, policy-making, and economic activities aimed at protecting and preserving whale populations.

Human activity and whales

Human activity has put pressure on whales since before the advent of written records. Evidence of whale hunting may date back as far as 6000 BCE, based on archeological research work conducted at the Bangudae site in South Korea.

Other anthropogenic hazards

Apart from whaling, whales face other threats from human activity:

  • By-catch (e.g. entanglement in fishing gear)
  • Ship strikes
  • Toxic contamination
  • Noise pollution (such as from sonar and underwater resource extraction activities)
  • Habitat degredation

In a study conducted at the Baumgartner LabBaumgartner Lab gliders were used to track the vocalizations of Baleen whales by equipping the gliders with high-resolution acoustics sensors. Initially, the project was set for the duration of a week, but when the gliders proved effective over longer periods of time the study was extended to a period greater than one month.

By the mid-1800s, the global whaling industry had reached its peak. ElectricityElectricity (as a source of light) and petrochemicals (as a source of lubricants and materials) would eventually lead to the whaling industry's decline. An estimated 300,000 sperm whales were killed between the early 1700s and the end of the 1800s. It is estimated that nearly 3 million whales were wiped out as a result of industrial-scale whaling––accelerated by diesel ships and exploding harpoons––between 1900 and 1999.

Whale Safe is an initiative from the University of California Santa Barbara's Benioff Ocean Initiative––in collaboration with whale biologists from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Texas A&M University Galveston, the University of California Santa Cruz, University of Washington, and NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center––to track whale and shipping activity to provide new scientific research into how to reduce the risk of whale-ship collisions, specifically in the Santa Barbara Channel.

...

The system uses acoustic monitoring and ship routing data to map potential overlaps between whales and ships. Whale Safe also incorporates map coordinates of verified sightings.
