Gray Whale (Eschrichtius robustus)

The species is harvested for subsistence in very low numbers (1 animal taken by the Makah Indian Tribe since 1997), with regulations in place limiting the number of animals that can be taken each year. In 1994, they were removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife, but remain protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972.
