So basically they are endangered by people.This is good news for the whales and for those of us who care about them. If only they would stop trapping lobsters that would be even better. The hell they go through is awful.

This is good news, but soon there will be an even bigger danger to the Right Whales. A pipeline has been proposed to bring tar sands oil to Saint John NB and the largest tankers in the world will be coming and going through the whales summer home waters, the Bay of Fundy. I believe if this pipeline goes through, the whales are doomed to extinction.

Good news! But the battle must continue to make sure that the NMFS will implement important changes in the American lobster fishery or it will spell extinction for four whale species especially the North Atlantic Right Whale! "The North Atlantic right whale is one of the most critically imperiled whale species in the world. Out of a population once numbering in the tens of thousands, fewer than 500 right whales survive. The loss of even a single right whale pushes the species ever closer to the brink of extinction. If current trends continue, scientists estimate, the species will become extinct in less than 200 years. Humpback whales, fin whales, and sei whales are also at risk of extinction, their numbers historically decimated by whaling and still nowhere near recovered despite decades of legal protection." Thanks Kelly!
