Conservationists are headed to court to get some long overdue protection for a rare population of false killer whales.
False killer whales, who are members of the dolphin family, can be found throughout the world’s oceans in tropical waters. The Hawaiian om/causes/hawaiis-endislands are home to a genetically distinct population who stay near shore year round.
Sadly, their population has declined dramatically over the past two decades. There are estimated to be only 150 of them left in existence.
