Another North Atlantic right whale has been found dead in eastern waters.
Researchers at the New England Aquarium in Boston say a female whale named “Couplet” was found last Monday in the waters off Cape Cod.
Melissa Munro of Sierra Club Canada says the loss feels like “a death in the family.”
Ten of the endangered mammals have died in the Gulf of St. Lawrence since early June.
Ottawa imposed speed restrictions last Friday in an area of the gulf extending from Quebec’s north shore to just north of Prince Edward Island.
