Northern right whale

Northern Right Whale
The poor right whales originally got their name because they were the "right" whales to hunt! Humans have hunted them, run them over with their ships, caught them in their fishing nets, and destroyed their habitat. There may be less than 400 of the northern right whales left. They live in the North Pacific and the North Atlantic. They are now being tracked and studied in hopes that we can find a way to protect them from further harm.
