These gentle giants no longer die of natural causes. Instead, they are run over by ships or suffer lethal injuries from fishing gear, and over the past decade, they’ve been dying at a rate of 24 per year. This staggering death toll is fueling a movement to save the first great whale to face extinction. Last of the Right Whales is the story of a disparate group of people – a wildlife photographer, a marine biologist, a whale rescuer, and a crab fisher—united in their cause to save the North Atlantic right whale. By joining forces these formidable allies are determined to stop the world’s first great whale extinction. With unprecedented access to the migration of the North Atlantic right whales from their calving ground off the coast of Florida to their new feeding area in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Last of the Right Whales brings a message of hope about the most at-risk great whale on the planet.
