Five Years of Failure
Cook Inlet beluga whales (CIBWs) are in peril. Only about 279 individuals remain and at their current rate of decline the population faces a serious risk of functional extinction in about a decade. Cook Inlet belugas have been in decline for almost two decades and were designated as endangered in 2008. While the situation is distressing, it is sadly not surprising.
