Right Whales Are Back!

The right whales, once near extinction, have come back to Cape Cod Bay for their mid-winter break. Every year is different, but this year seems especially good for these sea creatures. Last year we had an (according to scientists) unusual mid-winter birth in the Bay, where scientists feared for the life of the calf due to the cold water temperatures. The calf was spotted well into the warmer weather so their fears were allayed. The estimated total right whale population is about 510. Thoughts are that about half of them frequent Cape Cod Bay. Wow!
