July 23rd

World Whale and Dolphin Day

World Whale and Dolphin Day

Commercial fishing has reached such a level in the past that there is a real threat of extinction of several species of marine mammals, such as whales and dolphins. For the first time, restrictive quotas were introduced and a total ban on commercial whaling was declared on July 23, 1982. This date was later chosen (in 1986) as World Whale and Dolphin Day.

23 July is World Whale and Dolphin Day, which raises awareness about the issues facing these marine mammals. Whales are crucial for maintaining a healthy ocean and combating climate change, as they help remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. There are other days dedicated to the protection of marine animals, such as World Whale Day on 19 February. Environmental organizations organize various events to defend these species, and in 2013, a demonstration promoting the closure of all dolphinariums took place in the European Union. Whales and dolphins have become popular among the public due to their unique characteristics and intelligence. Orcas, for example, can live up to 30-60 years in the wild and 10-30 years in captivity. Dolphins, known as one of the smartest animals on the planet, have even been able to communicate and heal certain diseases in humans. It is important to learn more about these amazing creatures and how to contribute to their survival.
