Next message: IMS: "challenge question #4"
The federal agency in charge of the endangered species converstation
protection wants to know about the number of humpback whales in waters
outside of the United States because they are interested in developing a
better estimate of the number of humpbacks in the world, because they
are endangered. This helps to verify the number each year and tells
scientists whether they are increasing or decreasing due to mating,
disease, or any other environmental problems.
