DFO finds rare whale on BC coast

In June, researchers at Fisheries and Oceans Canada spotted a North Pacific right whale off the BC coast.  This is one of the planet’s rarest and most endangered whales since they were hunted to near extinction.  The last NP right whale seen in BC was in 1951; it was killed by whalers. Footage is from DFO and Dr. John Ford’s interview was with The Province.
