PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) Regina Asmutis-Silvia, a biologist who has dedicated her career to saving right whales, is cleaning out a file cabinet from the early 1990s, and the documents inside tell a familiar story the whales are dying from collisions with ships and entanglements in commercial fishing gear, and the species might not survive. Fast forward through a quarter-century of crawl-paced progress, and it's all happening again. "It's a little scary to think if we hadn't been working on this all these years, would they have been relegated to history instead of Cape Cod Bay?" said Asmutis-Silvia, of Plymouth, Massachusetts-based Whale and Dolphin Conservation.
