    No, all whales are not endangered.  Out of the 11 specie of whales, 7 are considered endangered.  This includes the Mysticetes, or baleen whales, such as the humpback or blue whale.  There are many dolphin and porpoise species that are not considered endangered.  The great whales suffered a huge blow to their populations during whaling times.
