North Atlantic Right Whales: From Hunted Leviathan to Conservation Icon


by: David W. Laist

In the cold waters of the unforgiving North Atlantic Ocean, some of the heartiest humans of medieval days ventured out in search of whales.

Central to the whale’s subsequent struggle for existence has been one species--the North Atlantic right whale.

The Urban Whale: North Atlantic Right Whales at the Crossroads

It was, one scientist later recalled, "like finding a brontosaurus in the backyard." Until that time, scientists believed the North Atlantic right whale was extinct or nearly so. The sightings electrified the research community, spurring a quarter century of exploration, which is documented here.

The authors present our current knowledge about the biology and plight of right whales, including their reproduction, feeding, genetics, and endocrinology, as well as fatal run-ins with ships and fishing gear.
