As far as endangering. No. Faroe Island whaling is done traditionally, non commercially and targeted types of whales (long-finned pilot whales mainly) have a stable population of about 750,000 whales in the north atlantic. They also only hunt whales that come close to the traditional Grindadrap beaches (there are about 20 of those).
Opposition to Faroese whaling can't really be done on the basis of "they're endangering the population!" but if done, must be done on ethical grounds.
If we're looking at the real scandinavian whale hunting monster we have to look in another direction (Norway, conducting commercial whale hunting of about 500-1200 Minke whales per year).
