Conservation genomics of the Endangered North Atlantic right whale


Welcome


The North Atlantic right whale is the world’s most endangered large whale with fewer than 400 individuals remaining. Despite decades of conservation efforts, the species has not recovered. Rather, the species continues to decline as a result of several factors, but primarily 1) anthropogenic mortality and 2) a low reproductive rate. 

Bringing together a collaborative team with wide ranging expertise in industry, government, and genomic and social science research, our synergistic project is using genomic and GE3LS (genomics and its ethical, environmental, economic, legal and social aspects) data to address these issues and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of conservation strategies in both Canada and the U.S.
