Guest: Erin Meyer-Gutbrod, PhD, Postdoctoral Scholar, Marine Science Institute, University of California, Santa Barbara Things are not right among the world’s North Atlantic right whales. They’re a highly endangered species and over the summer 15 of them turned up dead in US and Canadian waters. That’s a major blow, considering there are fewer than 500 on the planet as it is. Another year like 2017 could wipe them out entirely, according to research coauthored by Erin Meyer-Gutbrod.
