The Right Stuff…

The Southern Right Whale (Eubalaena australis) has made a strong recovery since it’s initial protection from hunting in 1935. The population dropped sharply in the 1960s due to heavy illegal poaching (wiping out nearly half of its remaining numbers) but since that was stopped the population has exhibited a healthy upward trend. From an estimated low of about 200 in the 1920s to a population of nearly 7,500 currently, clearly this whale has the “right stuff” to make a recovery… if we let it.
