no new births of right whale

no whale baby after breeding season

全球只剩下約430隻北大西洋露脊鯨,而在剛結束的繁殖期中,卻並沒有任何幼鯨誕生。露脊鯨的數量及繁殖率下降,82%因漁業用繩網纏身導致過早死亡。海水溫度上升亦令牠們的食物數量急降。

there are only around 430 north atlantic right whale left in the wild, and no calves were born in this year’s breeding season. the numbers and reproduction rate are dropping; 82% of premature deaths are caused by entanglement in fishing line. global warming also caused the shortage of their main food source, phytoplankton.
