Narwhals are believed to have a worldwide population of about 75,000 individuals, and are classified as near threatened by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Their primary threats are poaching and climate change. Thankfully, they are protected by multiple legislations introduced by the European Union, such as an import ban on their tusks.
A type of whale found in the Arctic waters of Greenland, Canada, and Russia, the narwhal is certainly one of the more unique animals on planet Earth. Believe it or not, the narwhal doesn’t actually have a horn; instead, it has a unique type of tusk!
