How a song saved a species (Subtitled EN)

In the 60’s, The commercial whale hunting caused the whale population to fall by an estimated 90% from what it used to be in the XIX century. The discovery of Roger Payne and his team, that whales are intelligent animals and who play a crucial role in maintaining the ocean healthy, contributed a to a creation of a global movement which led, years later, to a moratorium on industrial whaling.

About How a song saved a species:
Whales are vital to maintain healthy oceans. Since we can fish at industrial scales, we are putting at risk the very equilibrium of our ecosystem. And whales are one of its key link.
I hope it will raise consciousness about this issue, and by it, to the others our oceans are facing.
