Did you know that fin whales are two-faced?
(the left lower jar of the fin whale is dark grey, the right is pale grey to white…)
But this is not what the newest special issue of ECO Magazine on Marine Mammals 2022 is all about. It is as much about conservation and good news stories as it is about threats to the survival of individuals and species of whales, dolphins and pinnipeds*.
It also celebrates international cooperation to protect these iconic species, which are so important in the ocean food web and also play a role in climate regulation.
And the special issue also features great images!
*pinnipeds are seals and similar species
