Steemit is the place to dream of whales and dolphins but this one is a different kind. Let's focus our eyes and Art on our marine friends!
Ceta-what? What does Cetacean mean?
THAT'S RIGHT! WE ARE DRAWING WHALES, DOLPHINS AND PORPOISES!
Popular as they are! We know a few whales and dolphins already!

There are many species we don't know yet and some are in critical danger
Maui's Dolphin, critically endangered
current population: 55
Vaquita Porpoise, critically endangered
Current population of 12.
marine life has drastically declined and many species are becoming extinct. Plastic pollution, over fishing, ghost fishing and black markets are causing all this death.
