  Those are some of the questions discussed in the new book titled Ecological Forest Management by Franklin, Johnson and Johnson. Full disclosure, Dr. Jerry Franklin, the lead author, sits on Conservation Northwest’s Board of Advisors. The whales were brought to San Francisco by boat and shipped to Salt Lake City by railway. Wickham released the whales near the mouth of Bear River. He intended for the creatures to stay in a half-mile mesh enclosure, but the whales broke free .

Status. Commercial whaling severely reduced humpback whale numbers from historical levels. The United States listed all humpback whales as endangered under the Endangered Species Conservation Act in , and then under the Endangered Species Act in NOAA Fisheries worked worldwide to identify and apply protections for humpback whales. The conservation needs of the 21st century are very different from the ones contemplated when the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling (ICRW) was concluded in Although a more up-to-date Convention is highly desirable, this is .

Conservation, study of the loss of Earth’s biological diversity and the ways this loss can be prevented. Biological diversity, or biodiversity, is the variety of life either in a particular place or on the entire planet Earth, including its ecosystems, species, populations, and genes. Conservation of this species should be given high priority and be seen as an important part of integrated coastal zone management. Establishment of multiple-use management areas with controlled ecotourism and several priority sites declared as strict reserves seems to be the most effective conservation approach.

Greenpeace and Whales. The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund supported a study on killer whale energetics to help determine how whales have solved the complex bioenergetic relationships of energy intake and expenditure and what impact they are eventually having on their system.

The study measured the metabolic rates of killer whales at SeaWorld.InPacific Whale Foundation created an annual conservation campaign entitled “Protect the Endangered 5.” Funds raised during the campaign were donated to researchers studying five endangered cetaceans on the brink of extinction: the Hawaiian False Killer Whale, the Chilean Blue Whale, the Maui Dolphin, the Arabian Sea Humpback.
