The Everglades Whale is a New Species

A new species. And already endangered.

The whale that was discovered dead on the beach (from chocking from plastic) in 2019 turned out to be an entirely new species. And there’s apparently less than 100 of them. So yay, another species humanity will probably kill. Sorry everyone. It’s just the idea that something so majestic was killed by plastic that was underwater.

The study on this poor creature is here :

The statement from NOAA is here :

It’s called the Rice’s Whale. Let’s all do our part to ensure that this whale species survives.
