Whales are smart and beautiful creatures that we do not see every day because unfortunately, they have become extinct and near to end. That is why we must start a campaign or join one about saving the whales from extinction. As an individual, avoid doing the things that could harm the sea creatures. Let us not dump toxic wastes, garbages and poisonous junks into the sea and ocean. Remember that making a small good deed is big enough to help the whales.
