According to USA federal government officials, the endangered whales might become extinct unless any new measures are taken for their protection. The numbers of the North Atlantic right whales, which are considered to be among the rarest marine mammals of all whale species in the world, have plunged since 2010. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has prophesied that there are only about 450 of whales remaining and 17 of them have expired so far in 2017.
John Bullard, the Northeast Regional Administrator for NOAA Fisheries, said that the whales' situation is so bad that American and Canadian lawmakers need to consider the possibility that the current population will die out without prompt action. An excessive year of mortality is co-existing with a year of indigent replication, and there are only about 100 breeding female North Atlantic right whales remaining.
Bullard also said that you have to utilize the extermination word because that's where the trend lines say they are. We can not let this take precedence.
Murray-Brown said that both countries must work to reduce whale deaths caused by human activities.

Vessel strikes and entanglement in fishing gear such as nets are commonly cited reasons for the right whale's death. As of recent times, nearly only 100 breeding females are left. What's more, entrapment in fishing gear stresses the male right whales, affecting their ability to reproduce, according to a study published in Endangered Species Research.
Why do right whales get killed so often?
Federal law now requires that vessels must be 1,500 feet away from right whales, and those that are 65 feet or longer must slow to 10 knots or even lesser in certain areas along the East Coast during calving or nursing season.
