Are whales less likely to be harmed by the oil spill because they surface to breathe?

    No, they are very likely to be harmed. Breathing is not the only key in survival. Their entire eco-system is in threat, their food supply is trenched within the oil spill. Although they breathe up at the surface, the surface itself still have toxic fumes that are released into the air that whales can breathe. There are still many threats facing whales after the BP oil spill, and coming up to the surface to breathe will not make anything less likely.
