Southern Right Whale

Hunted almost to extinction, the southern right whale is clinging on to survival

Our Expert Says… "RIght whales can be very difficult to spot in bigger seas because they don't have a dorsal fin. This means that when they surface they can easily be hidden by even modest waves. If we do see one, you can confirm it's a Right whale by looking for the patches of barnacles that will be present around the head."

There are thought to be fewer than 10,000 Southern right whales remaining. They are so-named because they were deemed the “right whale to hunt” as they were recognized to be a slow-swimming species that laid down plenty of whale oil and blubber, and the carcasses float when killed, rather than sink.
