{update} Up to 5 new calves!

Aerial surveys in the Southeastern United States have documented five 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.

And a big thank you to Marianna Hagbloom who posted the news on the Right Whale Research Program Facebook page!
