Pre-University Paper from the year 2018 in the subject Biology - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,0, , language: English, abstract: What are the main reasons for whales being threatened to the point of extinction? How severely does pullution, and the current problem of plastic rubbish, that is spreading to an unimaginable level, endanger whales? What impact does captivity have on the behaviour of whales? And what can we do to end whale hunting and the cruelty that these animals must face daily? The aim of this paper is to show how modern-day human behaviour is affecting the lives of many other species on planet earth - especially in our oceans. My work is divided into two main subjects: Firstly, how humans affect nature using the example of whales and, secondly, measures previously and currently taken to protect whales. The first chapter is subdivided into the following areas: threats caused by overfishing, contamination and pollution, subaqueous noise and changes in behaviour in whales held in captivity. The second chapter has been structured into three sections: intensification of regulations relating to whaling, measures that every individual can undertake to support organisations working towards the rescue of the marine environment and, finally, what these organisations actually do to help.
