    {Blue_Whale.jpg} http://myanimalblog.wordpress.com/2008/02/18/blue-whale/The Blue Whale is the largest animal to ever have existed on earth, even larger than the dinosaurs. These extraordinary creatures grow up to 30 meters long and weigh about 3 tons. They live in all the oceans of the world, however, in the 12th century, the number of whales in the ocean was greatly depleted. The reason is whaling. Many parts of a whale's body was used to make medicine, oil, makeup, and soap. Whales breed more slowly than most animals and they were unable to recover the lost number of whales. Sadly, the blue whale is one of the species of whale yet to fully recover. Thanks to the banning of commercial whaling and special organizations to help these creatures, the number of blue whales on earth are slowly increasing. Now, all they need is your support.

    {Elderberry_Beetle.jpg} http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/7c/Valley_elderberry_longhorn_beetle_FWS.jpg/300px-Valley_elderberry_longhorn_beetle_FWS.jpgThese beetles live in California and are a threatened species. These beetles are in danger of extinction due to pesticides and birds overeating these insects. If these insects disappear however, some species of animals that depend on Elderberry Beetles for their main source of food will also begin to die out. A limited use of pesticides could help this problem.

    Mediterranean Monk Seal, Monachus monachus
    {Mediterranean_Monk_Seal.jpg} http://www.cdnn.info/news/eco/e060906.htmlThis seal is thought to be one of the most endangered mammals on the earth. As its name implies, it lives in the Mediterranean Sea, but also in the Atlantic Ocean, and even the Tropic of Cancer. It is characterized by its black or dark grey fur, and it has no ears. A Monk Seal also has a short, broad snout and long nostrils that turn upwards. They were once found in the Sea of Marmama but it has died out due to pollution, and heavy ship traffic. They were also hunted for some time because of damage done to fishing nets near the oceans where this animal lives, not for population control but most likely for revenge. This seal has had many more troubles and faced many hardships in its time and has been unable to recover after these deaths. There are a few organizations dedicated to preserving this mammal, and you can help too. Don't let this beautiful animal die out!
