ANOTHER EXCITING RIGHT WHALE UPDATE!
Our researchers More than half of the global population of North Atlantic right whales visited Cape Cod Bay in the last four months!
Using photographs taken during aerial surveys, researchers from the Center for Coastal Studies have so far identified 219 individual whales out of a population of 411. There are many more days of surveillance to go before the right whales leave our waters, so that number is likely to rise significantly.
So far the highest number of right whales sighted in the Bay in one day is 158 – more than 1/3 the population!
Other cetacean species are arriving too; humpbacks, fin, sei and minke whales are increasing in numbers as the season progresses, making for some terrific early whale watching experiences.
Read all about this year’s right whales from the researchers themselves – Amy, Brigid and Alison - at coastalstudies.org/right-whale-research/field-notes/field-notes-2018-2019/
Want to support our efforts to protect and preserve the right whales? Donate at coastalstudies.org/1000friends or make a purchase at our online store: squareup.com/store/center-for-coastal-studies-3/
