Why We Need More Whale Poop in the World
In a recent study, it shows that there has been a decrease in large animals, and along with these animals goes their poops. Why are their feces so important? Let’s go into the messy explanation.

Poop is good ok!

Ok so let me explain this in the most basic way. Have you ever had a garden? You know how the ground has to be fertile for things to grow (to create more life?). Well, without poo the ground tends to be a lot less fertile.
Large poops equals large amounts of life!

But why specifically whale poops?

A whale typically feeds at the bottom of the ocean, but the poop floats to the top. Hence they are moving large gaps of bacteria from the bottom to the top.
Nutrients are recycled and moved to other places...thus making the world a more fertile place! Essentially it’s the recycling and movement of bacteria in the water, across countries, across lands, and in place it would not typically be exposed to.

Without the poop...

Nutrients end up following gravity onto the ocean floor, and staying there. The do not spread to the top of mountains or in new places. Areas become more barren and less fertile.

So even if you aren’t a fan of whales, you still have to be a fan of their poops.

That’s right people. Let’s all be fans of whale poops!

What will you do to save the whale poops?

I don't know but after reading this I thought what's a whale poop like. I think I haven't seen one yet. Also, I was thinking it's big since a whale's huge hahahhaah. Sorry, all I can think of is how it looks like. But of course I'm always pro nature
Hahahahaha after this comment, I literally just google “what does whale poop look like.” I’m tempted to publish a card about it... @WiviDemol
ahaha @nicolejb I made you wonder how it looks like. I totally haven't seen one. Since we're talking about poop here I think you making a card about it would be cool :)
