Is Whale Watching Harmful to Whales?

There is almost certainly a flippant answer to that question (involving the expression duh), especially if the poor whale finds itself in Central Park as pictured above. However, The Ark in Space today poses this question. After all, over thirteen million of us now enjoy watching whales each year and that is bound to have some sort of impact on the whales and their environment. Together with a wonderful gallery of pictures, Ark in Space answers the question and asks what can be done about it. Click on the links or the picture to find out more.
