According to U.S. officials, the North Atlantic right whale’s population is decreasing at a disturbing rate.

In 2017, scientists know of 17 whales that perished—mostly from collisions with ships, entanglement in fishing nets, and stress. The reason for their decline is clearly connected to human activity.

Yale Environment 360 tweeted “Just slightly more than 100 reproducing North Atlantic right whale females are alive today. And while males can live to 85 years of age, 2/3 of females die before reaching 30.” The whales are being monitored closely and new fishing regulations are being discussed.
