"Last November, a humpback whale swam up the Hudson River. The animal was spotted slapping its fin near the Upper West Side and then splashing below the Statue of Liberty’s effervescent mint skirt. [An expert] assured reporters that it was likely not lost but hungry." Cleaner water in the Hudson has cleared the way for whales to return to New York City for the first time in 100 years, in such numbers that you can take urban whale-watching cruises. And citizen scientists are on the case (and on the boats)!
