Eventorum – Whither the Whales?

Image: a North Atlantic Right Whale with her calf. See: “New Research Helps Explain a Sudden Population Crash for Rare Whales”, in the NY Times, By Catrin Einhorn, Sept. 1, 2021 (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/01/climate/whales.html)

Right whales, wrong time. Human activities are leading to the demise of these majestic beings. Only 356 individual Northern Right Whales are thought to remain. Global warming (which affects their food supply and reproduction rates), ship strikes, and entanglements in fishing gear are the primary culprits. Every choice we make, every single day has impacts and implications that range far beyond what is immediately evident.
