North Atlantic right whale population leveled off in 2022

  1. That’s the number of North Atlantic right whales on this planet, according to a report released on October 23, 2023 by the New England Aquarium via the North Atlantic Right Whale Consortium, which includes WHOI researchers.  The good news:  the 2022 numbers indicate that the population is leveling off after several years of decline. The less-good news: the critically-endangered whales are dying at about the same rate as they are having babies.
