Despite the fact that since 1986 there has been a moratorium on commercial whaling, there is still such a profession in the world as a whaler. And last year, whalers, mostly Japanese, killed one hundred seventy two whales around the world. Here is their death and dedicated exposition, installed directly on one of the Viennese streets.

Not everyone knows that the smartest animals after humans are not monkeys at all, but whales. But the whales in our world are very unlucky! After all, from their bodies you can get a lot of different substances (meat, fat, whalebone), for which buyers give a decent amount of money. And, despite the fact that many species of whales are listed in the Red Book, whalers do not even think to stop hunting these animals.

This is opposed by many different organizations around the world. In particular, an organization called Sea Sheperd, which initiated the creation of an exhibition in Vienna dedicated to whale hunting. And the Austrian advertising agency Lowe GGK invented and created this exposition.

The described exposition is one hundred seventy-two posters (according to the number of whales killed in 2010 in the world) with whales depicted on them. On each of these posters, in addition to the whale itself, there is a text with the countdown "1st of 172", "2nd of 172" and so on up to "172nd of 172".

And all these one hundred and seventy-two whale posters were hung on a fence in one of the Viennese streets. Moreover, they are hung so that the edge of the fence pierces the animal depicted on the poster. The purpose of this action, this exhibition is to show people that one hundred and seventy-two is not so little when it comes to living things. Moreover, these creatures have a mind and feelings that differ little from human ones. Well, besides, as the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) never ceases to remind Humanity, we are all connected!
