Unfortunately, this does not come as that big a surprise. (I feel so sorry for the animals that share this planet with human beings, they can do nothing about what we do to this planet. We are seeing mass die offs, of the creatures on this planet including ourselves, time will tell what the outcome will be)

I eat sea food less and less as the years go by, and only eat local fish two or three times a year. Because of my concern for the pollutants we human discard everyday into the oceans.

Notato purtroppo, e non mi stupirebbe se la nuova ricerca, desse conferma che i metalli presenti nelle balene, le abbia condotte a comportamenti, che le hanno portate alla morte. Noi umani stiamo distruggendo tutto il bello del nostro pianeta. Grazie Cal per condividere.
