Fluker: a whale at death's door in the Mediterranean sea

She lost her flipper after colliding with a ship, and since then, she's been hugging the Mediterranean coast, unable to feed herself properly. Terribly thin, Fluker the whale is now at the end of her life… Footage by Alexis Rosenfeld Photographe and WWF-France

    Can she be euthanised? She can not feed and only have a horrible death. Would it not be kinder to assist her death? I know that sounds terrible but her suffering would be reduced.

    3D print her a tail and attach it and see if she can dive

    Incredibly sad. We need to take care of our oceans more.

    We should equip ships with some sort of underwater tone generator, which plays a certain frequency to scare them away, as long as the ship passes their area. I dont know if thats even working, but we are humans and each one of us supports growing ship travel because of our consumption of goods. We cant ban ships, we just need to figure out a way how they and the animals can live together without any distress.
