Discussion: Humpback whales increasing in waters near NYC

FOX Headline: Terrorists now using whales to scope out NYC for new attacks.

This is very cool, and proof that protecting species works. The factors referenced in the casue of this all make perfect sense. Hopefully the potential shipping lanes problem can be addressed

Part of the effects of climate change ?

No, from the article it seems to be related to the menhaden availability closer to shore, some good EPA legislation, and some good species protection. Makes sense. They are just coming closer to NYC itself, but have always been in this area.

good to know.

Are the menhaden more available than they have been in the past?
