Ranchi: Blue Whale are back.Locals are also delighted to see the Blue Whale

again off the coast of South Georgia. Actually, due to these marine creatures, this

area used to be a big center of tourism. But due to no law, they were hunted in the

last century. According to the estimates of ocean scientists, till 1998, about two

lakh blue whales were hunted in this area. For this reason, their population was

also reduced. On the other hand, due to the constant food crisis, this creature had

gone to the other side. Because of their departure, the entire business of tourism

based on them had come to a standstill. After so many days, he is seen again

cruising around the beaches here. Taking lessons from earlier experiences, local

citizens are also vigilant about their rescue.

For the first time after the absence of the last fifty years, groups of blue whale are

being seen again here. For the last twenty years, the people had longed to see this

biggest sea creature here. During this research conducted by marine scientists for

the last twenty years, only one whale was seen close to here. However, with the

help of instruments installed under the research, the sound of 58 such blue whales

and talking among them was also recorded. But this entire species also shied

away from slamming along the coasts of South Georgia. So it is a situation of

happiness for the local people to return.

Blue whale has a very sharp community memory

Scientists associated with this research believe that blue whale has a very fast

memory. Based on this memory, they travel a long distance in the sea. But Their 

return to this area also raises the suspicion that perhaps he did not remember the

earlier incidents about this place. Or they are starting to hover here considering it

a new area. Susannah Caldrin, scientist at the Scottish Association of Marin

Science, admits that she has been so hunted in the area that the new generation

may not have been able to remember those things from generation to generation.

From 1904, hunting blue whale had become an industry in this area. It is

estimated that all 42698 creatures hovering around were killed during that time.

In fact, the environmental science at that time was not so advanced that people

could understand the imbalance of environment and marine life from this hunting.

In the year 1960, their attention was reduced to a rapid decrease in their

population. Then law was made here so that they could be protected. Even after

this, their population was further reduced due to the continued poaching till the

70s. So when they ceased to be seen on these shores, the tourism industry here

felt the loss from this unaccounted hunting. For this reason, the local people

became very cautious about this as soon as they were seen again. Their effort is

also that the blue whale which comes in the water of low depth, should not have

any problem with human activities.

Their population grows very slowly

Scientists warn about them that their population grows very slowly. A child of

Blue Whale lives under his mother’s care for a year. That’s why the pace of their

population growth is so slow. In such a situation, their population cannot be

increased again without giving protection to Blue Whale. On the other hand, due

to their not being there, many kinds of imbalances are also created in the marine

life, which are ultimately going to harm the environment. By the way, researchers

also believe that they may have migrated elsewhere due to the food crisis for

these huge sea creatures due to the countless killing of other sea creatures during

extreme hunting. Now after seeing normalcy again, their groups are seen hovering

again.
