Meet Blue: Out Of The Depths

 Meet Blue, one of the nine blue whales found dead in the shores of the Gulf of St Lawrence in Newfoundland, Atlantic Canada in 2014. After several years, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto decided to keep Blue's remains for further study and to share her story to the rest of the country. The Blue whales are the largest mammal that have inhabited the Earth at 29.9 metres (98ft) and they mostly inhibit the area near Newfoundland near the Atlantic Ocean. They are bigger than the dinosaurs. They have also outlived the dinosaurs in this planet. A blue whale normally has a life span of 70 to 90 years old.  It exclusively feeds on the small fish, krill. One of the things that I learnt from this exhibit is that every natural thing is inter-connected. Who would have thought that the poo of the blue whale overrides our human release of carbon dioxide and is important for climate change? It does.  Their poo is what the krill fish eats which in turn the blue whales eat the krill fish. That's why on this Earth Day, we remember to respect and take care of our Earth. We have to recognise that climate change is for real and is an issue that will affect us if we do not take care of our planet. We have to do our part to save our planet as we are all inter-connected.
