Whales are the most profound and gentle beings to ever grace the earth and there way of life is changing in many drastic ways , e.g ocean temperatures increasing, sea level rising, plastics in there diet etc. But one measure that goes unnoticed is the major effect of shipping lanes suffocating there existence.

Many of the worlds busiest shipping and ferry lanes , this including cruises and so forth, overlap directly with areas where whales are feeding, giving birth, nursing there young and traveling to there feeding grounds. So when the whales get within a ships lane etc, this causes ships to injure the mammals as they spend most of there time at the surface of the ocean. There are 78 species of whale , dolphins and porpoises that spend a lot of time near the ocean surface. These injuries may become fatal because as time progresses the ships become more and more of a nuisance to the whales instead of a threat making the whales ignore incoming ships and therefore getting hit.

Ship strikes kill over 80 whales of the west coast alone each year according to point blue conservation and science. Add this to the many other issues they face , creates a cluster of problems for the animals and stopping this one can help there welfare and provide them with a peaceful life. 

There are ways we can stop this from happening , separate the fishing vessels , comercial vessels and cargo vessels from where figures show whales feeding and nursing there young , if a vessel is overlapping with a whales route slow it down to 10 nots , meaning in case of there being a whale in the way of the ship , the whale has time to move and notice the ship there.

This is one great urgent matter that needs an unprecedented amount of attention , please support this movement and help whales and many other species to a better future. 
Thank you !
