North Atlantic right whales are dying faster than they can reproduce.  With just over 330 remaining, these great whales rarely die of natural causes. Instead, they are run over by ships or suffer lethal injuries from fishing gear. If we don’t stop killing them, in 20 years they could be extinct.

From the only known calving grounds to the shifting feeding grounds, Last of the Right Whales follows the North Atlantic right whale migration and the people committed to saving a species still struggling to recover from centuries of hunting. Now climate change is forcing right whales further north in search of food, putting them on a collision course with deadly ships and fishing gear.

With unprecedented access to film the whale migration, Last of the Right Whales brings a message of hope about the most at-risk great whale on the planet.  Produced by HitPlay Productions.


After the documentary join us for a Q&A discussion with members of the North Atlantic Right Whale Consortium: Dr. Robert Kenney, Professor Emeritus, University of Rhode Island, Captain Thomas Fetherson, US Navy-retired, Regina Asmutis-Silva, Executive Director, Whale and Dolphin Conservation and Anne DiMonti, Director, Audubon Society of RI Nature Center and Aquarium.

 Regina and her team will also demonstrate new fishing technology called Ropeless or On-Demand Fishing, aimed at helping to save the North Atlantic right whales, and other whale species, from entanglement in fishing gear.
