{Update} Up to 14 new right whale calves!

The right whale breeding season is off to a fantastic start with 14 new calves born so far! In a population that totals only around 400 individuals, each new calf is very exciting!

Aerial survey teams in the Southeast U.S. from EcoHealth Alliance, Georgia DNR, and Florida Fish and Wildlife monitor the breeding grounds with the help of the New England Aquarium and NOAA. Together they collect and analyze this valuable data.
