Saving the North Atlantic Right Whale
Exploring partnerships and solutions for survival

Speakers: Michael Moore, Whale Trauma Specialist, Woods Hole 
Oceanographic Institution; Rob Martin, Commercial Fisherman; Michael 
Asaro, Ecological Economist, NOAA Fisheries, and host Véronique LaCapra, 
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

The North Atlantic right whale is one of the most endangered whales in 
the world, with an estimated 360 left on the planet. These animals are 
often found on the Continental Shelf of the East Coast of North America, 
making them vulnerable to human activities including fishing gear 
entanglements. In recent years, more whales have died than have been 
born. Join us as we examine the top threats facing North Atlantic right 
whales, and discuss the crucial efforts by the scientific community, 
fishing industry, and policy makers to develop the most effective and 
viable solutions to ensure the long-term survival of this critically 
endangered species.
