A fourth right whale calf has been born!

This is shaping up to be a good year for the right whales. From FWC: Our aerial survey team spotted Catalog #2503 with a calf on January 25, 2019 off Jekyll Island, GA. Catalog #2503 (nicknamed “Boomerang” for a scar on her fluke) has given birth to at least four calves in her lifetime. Her last calf was born during the winter of 2014-2015.
