There are 74 known marine species of cetaceans. Cetaceans are a group of mammals that includes whales, dolphins, and porpoises – the only mammals that are adapted to life in the open oceans. Cetaceans vary from human-sized to bigger than the largest dinosaurs, and are divided into two main groups: toothed whales and filter feeders. Hundreds of large whales and thousands of smaller whale species are killed every year in organized hunts around the world. From top to bottom: Northern Right Whale, Eubalaena glacialis; Humpback Whale, Megaptera novaeangliae; Harbour Porpoise, Phocoena phocoena; Northern Giant Bottlenose Whale, Beradius bairdii; Gray Whale, Eschrichtius robustus; Orca, Orcinus orca; Beluga, Delphinapterus leucas and Sperm Whale, Physeter macrocephalus.
