Commercial whaling in the 19th century threatened the North Atlantic Humpback Whale with extinction. A remarkable recovery under the Marine Mammal Protection Act was performed. Today lunge feeding humpback whales are admired by many ecotourists and the population flourishes – pulling together for survival and a brighter future.
