5-Year Review for North Atlantic Right Whale


Endangered Species Act
Action Status
Information Gathering
Affected Species


We are required by the Endangered Species Act to conduct 5-year reviews to ensure that listing classifications of species are accurate. The 5-year review must be based on the best scientific and commercial data available at the time of the review. We request submission of any such information on the North Atlantic right whale, particularly information on its status, threats, and recovery, that has become available since its last 5-year review. We have conducted a 5-year review of the North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis) in 2012, 2017, and most recently in 2022. We conclude that no change to the listing status is warranted at this time.
