Caption: Bleached whale bones at an old whaling station. Whales were hunted for their oil and blubber (fat layer), which was used to make soaps, cosmetics and other commercial products. The hunting reached a peak in the early 20th century, with up to 40,000 whales killed per year. Photographed in July in Norway's Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic.
