{update} So far 3 new calves!

Aerial surveys in the Southeastern United States have so far documented three new right whale calves!  With a population of only around 500 individuals, we celebrate the birth of each new right whale.  Thanks to all the folks who gather this information - NOAA's Southeast Regional Office, Sea to Shore Alliance, Florida Fish and Wildlife, and Georgia Department of Natural Resources. New mothers this year are: egno 2040 "Naevus", egno 2645, and egno 2123.
