With Amy Knowlton - New England Aquarium, Senior Scientist

North Atlantic Right whales, entangled in fishing gear, struck by ships, dying in higher than normal numbers, and feeding in new parts of the ocean, are at risk of going extinct. This small population is facing existing and new threats and people are working hard to save them. Other large whales have also been dying along the east coast at unprecedented levels.
