Save the Whales

Whales can suffocate or starve after getting tied up in fishing gear and it is estimated that about 300,000 whales, dolphins and porpoises a year die after being injured in nets or lines designed to target other species. However, very large whales getting trapped in fishing gear are rare compared with smaller species, leading to the assumption that they aren’t as much at risk. The risk that whales can get entangled in fishing nets appears to have been underestimated. Why do you think whales need to be protected more than the other smaller species ?
