North Atlantic Right whales are some of one of the most endangered whales in the world. These slow swimming baleen whales almost went extinct when whalers targeting them for their oil. Now, two of the biggest threats are entanglement in fishing gear and boat strikes. Scientists believe North Atlantic Right Whales may be extinct within the next 20 years!  

NOAA Fisheries now requires all vessels to stay 500 yards away from Right Whales (roughly the length of five football fields).  The Center of Coastal Studies in Provincetown, Massachusetts provides aerial surveys of the ocean to warn boaters when Right Whales are in the area. They also provide whale watching tours from land, where the public can view these beautiful animals without disturbing their habitat.

If you see any vessel approaching a Right Whale, please call the NOAA Fisheries Enforcement Hotline at (800) 853-1964. You can also visit the Center for Coastal Studies for more information on their Right Whale Emergency Initiative.
