Two endangered north atlantic right whales die in fishing gear

WDC is extremely concerned after two North Atlantic right whales were found dead and a third had to be rescued after getting caught up in fishing gear in recent days.

Only around 500 of the endangered creatures survive so to lose two, one of which was just reaching breeding age, is devastating.
