National Geographic has published an article on North American right whale deaths, written by University of New Brunswick, Fredericton alumnus, Tom Cheney.

Cheney’s article focuses on six recent deaths of the critically endangered mammals, which are edging closer to extinction. Only about 400 North Atlantic right whales are left.

The piece also references research from Dr. Kim Davies, an assistant professor of biology on UNB’s Saint John campus.

Cheney’s essay can be viewed on the National Geographic.
