Disappearing Giants: The North Atlantic Right Whale
By: Scott Kraus, Marilyn Marx, Heather Pettis, Amy Knowlton, Ken Mallory
The North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis) is one of the most endangered large whales in the oceans today. Fewer than 400 are left in their breeding and feeding grounds, which extend from Nova Scotia to the Gulf of Mexico. This newly published book tells their story - from the whaling history for which they are named, to the most up-to-date research efforts and population status. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photos, it describes how individual right whales are identified, how they feed, migrate, and face the challenges of life in the industrialized North Atlantic Ocean. The authors, long-time right whale researchers from the Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at New England Aquarium in Boston, hope this book will bring awareness to this wondrous but threatened whale species and the tremendous efforts being taken to help North Atlantic right whales avoid extinction, and thrive far into the future.
