Gotham Whale founder, Paul Sieswerda, is on a mission to document the rebounding humpback whale population in the New York City Harbor. Legislation passed in the 1970s, like the Clean Water Act, has contributed to the resurging numbers of the whale population. » Subscribe to NBC News: 🤍nbcnews.to/SubscribeToNBC » Watch more NBC video: 🤍bit.ly/MoreNBCNews NBC News Digital is a collection of innovative and powerful news brands that deliver compelling, diverse and engaging news stories.

I lived my whole life in newyorkcity, and there was a sighting in the east river, and I'm from upper west side and ive seen things but not nine humpback whales, that's great
I would've passed out
Very nice 👍 Thank you, we did the one whale watching tour in New York recently
The water is cleaner, the sediment at the bottom is not.....
If the humpbacks population gets high enough in the New York harbor,
We just MIGHT see some orca pods in the area
1970 "should we eat there?" "Nah that place is a dump"
2020 "should we eat there?" "looks good let's try it"
do nuclear explosions in the water affect these guys.???
This is heartwarming, but i'm also afraid for them due to the risk of getting hit by shipping.
bZv6tpvVqzE&t=2m15s 2:15 Menhaden ... everyone I know here on Long Isle calls them "moss bunker". ASIDE: To explain for non locals - theyre a slimy bloody and bony bait fish (with gamey tasting darkish oily flesh - not a good eating fish, but excellent for chum, chunk fishing, and making dried fish food) that feed on algae. Local top predators (Bluefish, Striped Bass, and the occasional Bull or Dusky Shark) love them ... they herd them into bait balls, easily spotted by passers by as a churning patch of water filled with flapping tails, diving birds, and jumping fish. A common sight in late summer and early fall.
The whales heard Lizzo was in town and are there to court her
Looks like they were having a whale-of-a-time😉
the whales 🐳 better get out of that Dirty NYC water
Don't let the Whales in unless they are vaccinated .
Quit trashing the oceans with sewage and oil , get these dumbasses like newsome out of office
Amazing how nature returns when we stop poisoning it.
I live in nyc for 54 years and never seen a whale in the harbor.. this is exciting news means the water quality is getting better.. there was a time when the harbor was filthy and if you feel in you had to go to the hospital but yea this is great news
