What is the most endangered type of whale?



  1. 0 Votes

    The North Pacific Right Whale is one, if not the most, endangered species of whales.  They have been hunted for their oil and meat for centuries.  North Pacific Right Whales are huge, slow-moving whales that are called Right Whales by fisherman because they are the “right” whale to kill.  They have been on the endangered species list for over forty years.

    Presently, there are only about 300 North Atlantic Right Whales remaining, making them the most endangered whale.  Right whales were so named because they were considered the “right” whale to hunt, not only because they were full of valuable blubber, but also because they swam close to the shore and, once killed, floated on the top of the water, making them a very convenient whale to catch.
