Thanks for playing the Seamulation

You have now seen that less shipping, hunting, waste, fishing and fewer nets lead to an increase in whale numbers and therefore more whale poo! The poo Increases phytoplankton density, which means more CO2 is absorbed and more oxygen produced. Biodiversity therefore also increases. More shipping, yachts, waste, nets and fishing boats lead to the opposite scenario. Did you know that conservation also increases the total economic value of whales in the oceans?
