Annual Right Whale migration
Every January and February pregnant female Right Whales arrive off the Florida and Georgia coastline to deliver their calves.
One of the biggest mysteries is where the males and non pregnant females go during the winter months. They leave the northern feeding grounds but do not show up in the Florida/Georgia waters during the time that the pregnant females are there. At this point no one knows where they go.
There have only been a few young whales and males spotted accompanying the pregnant females. The estimated 400 or fewer Right Whales all leave their northern feeding grounds during this time and nobody knows where the adult males and non- pregnant females go during this time.
December to March is when the endangered North Atlantic Right Whale migrates to the east coast of Georgia and Florida for calving. This is the only known calving area for this whale. Volunteers have been recruited & trained and are actively observing the shoreline to report sightings of mothers and calves.
Sightings have been reported already this season.
To report a sighting or a North American Right Whale call the hot line at 1-888-979-4253. Right Whales have been known to reach 60 feet in length and weight up to 117 tons. It is believed the whales live for about 70 years.
Have a great day
