{Update} Up to 20 new right whale calves!

What wonderful news - we are now up to 20 new North Atlantic right whale calves this season! Every new calf is so important for this critically endangered population which only numbers around 400 individuals total.

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of many researchers, NGOs, state and federal government agencies who make this information possible - Florida Fish and Wildlife Service, EcoHealth Alliance, Georgia DNR, the New England Aquarium, and NOAA among others.
