For the first time in over 60 years a North Pacific black whale - one of the most endangered animals in the world - was spotted last week on the west coast of Canada. The aquatic mammal was observed by the crew of a Canadian Coast Guard ship passing through the Queen Charlotte Islands, near the border with Alaska.

Black whales were seen only six times in the 20th century, the last time about 60 years ago. According to experts, it is estimated that there are between 300 and 400 of the species in Canada, Alaska and the Bering Sea.
