Giant of the sea

The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is the largest animal ever known to inhabit the earth. It can grow up to 33 m (108 ft) long and can weigh up to 180 metric tons (198 tons).

The blue whales gargantuan proportions remain hidden beneath ocean waves, only to reveal themselves for a brief, awe-inspiring moment whenever this majestic creature rises to the surface to breathea whale watchers dream on Canadas Pacific and Atlantic waters.

Due to severe hunting practices in the 1900s, the blue whale is listed as an endangered species under COSE WIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada).
