Weather of Arabia - After the wave of news that on Sunday circulated social media on the voice of the blue whale on the shores of Egypt and Libya, the Egyptian Ministry of Environment issued a statement published on its official Facebook page, which denied this news.
She pointed out that the work teams of the Ministry of Environment in the northern region reserves have verified the information by communicating with many citizens and agencies to question the truth of these sections, which all reached a firm denial to hear those voices in any of the cities of the northern coast.
And I suggested that these clips were deliberately created by installing sound on video clips, confirming that the sounds accompanying the clips contradict the sounds produced by whales to communicate with each other under the water, which is characterized by low frequency for levels that are difficult for humans to hear most of them except through specialized scientific tools to record and enlarge them to levels commensurate with Hearing capabilities of humans.
The ministry stressed the existence of many types of whales in the Mediterranean Sea. Repeated viewing of them on the Egyptian coast is a positive indication of the safety of the environmental situation in the northern coast and a success of recent international efforts in which Egypt has actively participated in recent years to protect the whales from extinction due to the effective role these creatures play In the environmental balance and stability of the ecosystems in the Mediterranean Sea and all seas and oceans of the world.
The ministry called on not to take any actions that disturb or cause harm to any of the whales in the event that they are monitored, bearing in mind that all whales that are in the Egyptian seas are not harmful to humans, and no incidents of direct or indirect contact of these species with humans have ever been recorded. .
