Minimizing Vessel Strikes with North Atlantic Right Whales

Minimizing Vessel Strikes with North Atlantic Right Whales

North Atlantic right whales (aka northern right whales) (Eubalaena glacialis) are a nearly extinct species whose population is steadily decreasing. Two of the primary threats endangering this species are collisions with ships and entanglement in fishing gear. With only an estimated 500 North Atlantic right whales remaining worldwide, it is vital that we minimize vessel strikes with this dwindling population. The link below is a guide to help boaters understand the seasonal locations where right whales are most vulnerable.
