Good News from theCalving Grounds

Report from the Calving Ground: 31 Calves - As of February 10, 31 right whale mother/calf pairs have been reported from the southeastern United States (SEUS) calving ground. If all of these reports are confirmed, this will be a tie for the highest calf production to date, with 31 calves also born in the 2001 season. A note of interest is that several of the mothers this year have given birth to their sixth or seventh calf.
