Shift - NB

Marine biologists hope they can free one of the few remaining female North Atlantic right whales. The whale is known as Kleenex, and was found in the waters near Boston with thick fishing rope wrapped around its upper jaw. Philip Hamilton, a research scientist with the New England Aquarium, says she is one of the most productive of the endangered species, having given birth to several calves over the last decade.
