Between 10,000-25,000 Blue Whales are believed to swim the world's oceans. Hunting in the 1900s by whalers seeking whale oil put them to the brink of extinction. Between 1900 & the mid-1960s,360,000 blue whales were slaughtered. Protection finally came with the 1966 International Whaling Commission, but they've managed only a minor recovery since then. Blue whales have few predators but do fall victim to attacks by sharks & killer whales. Many are injured or die from impacts with large ships.
