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?

@MaighdlinS thank you for appreciating my humor. I also just like whales in general so I’m happy that there are even more reasons to save the whales... even if it’s poop right? @RaquelArredondo @Aubrey1990 ;)
well haha. i got to see this.
Whale then. 🐋🐳🐳 When humans continue to mess with things for personal gain, the order of nature is all messed up. The only thing I could say to do would be to stop polluting ecosystems and killing whales, or messing up the natural diet by adding chemicals and other unnatural things
Whale poop!!! :D Yucky but yeah any way!!
