U.S. researchers believe they have identified a wintering ground for the North Atlantic right whale, an endangered species.
The Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSCA ) announced Wednesday that air searches had spotted many more of the whales than usual in the Gulf of Maine, about 110 to 130 kilometres from the coasts of Maine and Massachusetts.
