Should scientists be allowed to research on blue whales? What do you think?

Due to recent entwined conflicts between scientists and law enforcers, we have seen a formation of a new ‘monarchy’ of laws that force scientists to study whales.

Outbreaks of interrogating negligent facts brewed by scientists have accumulated over the years. However, the main fact was that the fishing boats have begun to swarm over our oceans, thus creating putrid pollution. This enters the sea; causing the frequency (Hertz) of sound-waves emitted by whales to decline dramatically.

Although the stern facts announced by scientists have started to wither, the new brand of laws enforced by politicians have stated that there is a world-round crisis. This includes the massive decrease in the entire whale population caused by ceaseless persecution. This is the reason why a new variety of impertinent laws have been instated that will ban whale hunting completely.

In spite of the colossal build-up of reasons calling for the seizure of those laws supporting hunting; fore mostly we need to understand that there has been a steady rise in our knowledge of whales. It now seems as if the politicians might call for an end to these laws (– which allow whale hunting) after all since they have realised  vital action is now needed to stop jeopardizing the whale population and aid them to rise once more.

    First of all, I would like to say, well done on writing such a superb piece! It is great to see pupils taking an interest in wild life issues. Having read the piece and knowing about some research on whales that have gone on in the past I am inclined to be of the view that these experiments/research should stop if it is causing the decline of these whales. Never having seen a whale myself apart from what David Attenborough shows us in slow motion, I would hate to live in the world of the future where there are no whales for young people like those at your school to be fascinated by.

    The other side of the argument is that perhaps the research carried out by scientists ‘are for the good of humanity’? Although, questionable! I don’t know what other students/people might think but it is certainly one worth debating. Well done for putting this debate forward as something for all of us to think about. Keep up the good work.

    WOW Yousef!
    Firstly I am impressed by the maturity and the sheer clarity of this piece of writing. Well done. I am also glad that in this world we are living in, there are children like you who are considering how issues like this will impact on the future and how the decisions made now will affect the generations to come.
    Whilst I would have to agree with you that in principle I do not agree with testing on any animals there have been huge breaks in our understanding of various life forms due to the research undertaken by scientists. I believe that in order to combat the threat of blue whales dying out, there should be strict controls on how this research is carried out.
    Nevertheless, this is a great piece of writing and a very thoughful piece, keep up the good work, it will pay off.

    I have been a long supporter of whale conservation and was so impressed to see your comments on this subject.
    We share this world with lots of people and animals. Some animals where here long before man and woman. Whales in particular have lived on the planet earth for many years.
    This is a difficult subject to debate. To be able to support the whale population and ultimately conserve those scientists need to understand them better. However this should not be at the detriment to their health or well being. Any testing should be humane and for the best interests of the species.
    Well done for tackling this subject.
