The North Atlantic right whale got its name from whalers. The whales were easy targets to hunt since they travel slowly and spend a lot of time at the surface. For whalers they were the “right” whales to hunt. With fewer than 400 left, they are now the “right” whales to save. Part of the "Endangered Ocean" series.
