Creator: Nielsen, John

Description: This radio broadcast features interviews with researchers who are investigating threats to the northern right whale. Even though commercial hunting ended nearly 100 years ago, northern right whales haven't rebounded the way some other whale species have. Threats which have been identified include collisions with ships, entanglement in fishing nets, and, most recently, noise pollution. The broadcast is 8 minutes and 38 seconds in length.
