Whales are helping fight climate change

Watch this WDC short video to find out how whales are helping to save the world.

Whales are playing a very important role in helping our oceans recover and fighting climate change.

Whale poo feeds the ocean’s phytoplankton forests. Phytoplankton forests are responsible for removing carbon from the atmosphere and producing oxygen for all life on earth. Whales also store huge amounts of carbon in their enormous bodies.

On average each whale helps to remove as much carbon from our atmosphere as 30,000 trees every year.

Whales are awesome!
