Should we give a damn about the western grey whales and why?
Hunting whales is just morally wrong.
Biodiversity loss is a major problem. Anywhere we can draw the line we should.
Protecting these whales will protect a lot of other wildlife. (The umbrella species argument.)
Conservation and development should be balanced, but sacrificing biodiversity to extract more fossil fuels which will just increase global warming is not a sensible trade off.
Conservation and development should be balanced, but we’d be asking Russia and the local communities in Siberia to sacrifice a lot of money and this is just a sub-species.
Economic development should generally take precedence over conservation within bounds, i.e. allow the oil and gas developments to go ahead with appropriate regulation.
This is just red tape dyed green, strangling legitimate business. If you want to keep the grey whales then you pay for it!
