Our favorite endangered species.
Can we say "Happy Endangered Species Day!"- or is that an oxymoron? I'm not happy that we have endangered species, but I am happy that we can take the time (even if it's just one day) to recognize all the hard work by the many people who help endangered species. I think today is a good day to reflect on all the things we can do to help endangered species both locally and worldwide. I know I can do more. Can you?
North Atlantic right whales are endangered, with a current population estimate of about 500 individuals. Please enjoy this video about some of the challenges, defeats and accomplishments of the Right Whale Research Program here at the New England Aquarium. If you're feeling inspired, consider sponsoring a right whale or subscribing to our print newsletter- 100% of the proceeds go towards our research.
