Sei whales, known for their impressive size and distinctive blue-gray coloring, have returned to Argentina's Patagonian coast after more than a century of absence.

According to a report by India Today, the reappearance of Sei whales is evidence of the positive impacts of international bans on commercial whaling implemented decades ago.

During the 1920s and 1930s, the Sei whale population was nearly decimated due to rampant commercial whaling.

The global prohibition of this practice has allowed these majestic marine creatures to gradually recover, demonstrating the effectiveness of sustained international wildlife conservation efforts.

Sei whales, which reproduce only every two to three years, have shown a slow but promising increase in population.

Conservationists note that cleaner and safer habitats have also played a role in the whales' comeback. They emphasize the importance of continuing to protect these areas to allow the whales to return and thrive undisturbed.
