Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 10 giugno 2021

Friend of the Sea Launches the Whale-Safe Certification to Stop the Death of 20.000 Whales Every Year.It’s a silent massacre most people are unaware of. Every year, up to 20,000 whales die because of lethal collisions with vessels. The image of a dead whale stuck in the bow of a vast container symbolizes this tragedy. However, most of the time, their bodies sink without leaving a trace that could show the magnitude of this phenomenon. Whale ship strikes have now become a significant threat to big cetaceans. Collision skill 20 times more whales than the controversial practice of whale hunting or whaling.To stop this bleeding, Friend of the Sea, a program from the World Sustainability Organization, has created the Whale-Safe international certification standard to raise awareness of this problem, engage the world shipping industry and reduce lethal collisions.
