10 Right Whale Calves so Far!

I've been remiss in updating the latest news on the right whale calving season (for those of you who don't know - I'm home on maternity leave and a bit out of the loop this winter!)...

So far this winter there have been 10 new right whale calves born to these moms:

1145
1241 BUGS
1701 APHRODITE
1950
2430 MINUS ONE
2642
3123
3142
3157
3180 DRAGON

Thanks to all the aerial survey teams in the Southeast who do the hard work to collect this valuable research (Wildlife Trust, New England Aquarium, Florida Fish & Wildlife Service, Georgia DNR, and NOAA)!!!
