Right Whale Calving Season Update

So far this year there have been 16 right whale calves born off the Southeastern United States! The rate of discovery of new calves is pretty similar to the past two seasons, so I'm hopeful that we'll have even more calves born over the next month or so.
Thanks to all the aerial survey teams in the Southeastern United States who collect this valuable data- Florida Fish and Wildlife Institute, the New England Aquarium, and Wildlife Trust.
