How Many Whales Are Killed Each Year?

Answer

While the exact number of how many whales are killed each year may not be specifically known, it is estimated that around 1,500 to 2,500 whales are hunted every year. The Makeh tribe in Washington traditionally hunts whales, and kills around 40 to 60 each year in the last decade. Whaling is a controversial practice, and there are many organizations that track the number of whales hunted year to year.
