Bright Spotting of Right Whales off Maine and South Carolina

Positive observations of right whales have been made recently off the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. A previously unobserved congregation of right whales, found south of Bar Harbor and east of Portland in the Gulf of Maine, may help researchers understand better where the rare whales head during the winter, perhaps making it easier to protect them. And while in flights over the South Carolina coast from November 2007 to April of 2008 last year resulted in a count of 40 right whales, this winter’s flights have resulted in a count of 21 right whales so far.
