May's Bracelet: Whales

Why Whales?

A blue whale is the largest animal on the planet and can grow to be up to 100 feet long! So why is such an enormous creature on the endangered list? Because of us. It is not just the blue whale that is affected by the growing problem of ocean pollution. 5 of the 13 great whale species are listed as endangered or critically endangered. Did you know that 69% of all whales have ingested plastic at least once in their life? With there being millions of pounds of trash in the ocean, it is no wonder these enormous creatures are accidentally ingesting, being entangled, and dying from plastic pollution.

 

 

At 4Ocean, our mission is clear - and we hope that all oceans will be one day as well. We are on a mission to remove as much trash from the ocean and surrounding coastlines as we can. We have 8 full time, licensed captains and cleanup crew members who are cleaning the ocean 7 days a week and have brought our cleanup efforts to 25 countries around the world. For the month of May, we have decided to focus our conservation efforts on an animal that has depended on healthy oceans for millions of years: the whale. We have partnered with the Whale & Dolphin Conservation (WDC) to support their campaigning, conservation, and education efforts around the world. Thanks to the work of the WDC, the vision for a world where every whale [and dolphin] is safe and free is becoming more and more of a reality. Their mission is "to amaze people with the wonder of whales [and dolphins] and inspire global action to protect them."

For the month of May, we will have our Limited Edition Whale Bracelet available on our website. Each Blue and Purple Bracelet purchased will remove 1 pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines as well as support the conservation efforts around the world of the Whale & Dolphin Conservation. Each bracelet is helping to guarantee a free, safe, and healthy ocean for whales in all oceans of the world.
