Possible new whale species under threat

A new species of whale that may have been discovered off the coast of Florida in the United States could also be the most endangered species in the world.
Scientists discovered the group of about 50 whales in the Gulf of Mexico. They are thought to be related to the Bryde’s family of whales, and live in an underwater canyon near Florida’s west coast, close to where the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill occurred. Sadly, leases for new oil and gas exploration in the region mean that this small group of whales could be under threat. The loss of just one individual in the group would put a question mark against the rest surviving.
