Earlier today I was sent a link from a friend who knows of my passion for marine life, I wanted to share the encouraging news with you folks as well!
"Record number of calves born this year".
"Thirty years of conservation efforts in the Bay of Fundy appear to be paying off for the North Atlantic Right Whale, one of the rarest large mammals on earth, scientist's say. The species, once headed for extinction, is experiencing a baby boom, with 39 calves born this year, and 37 of them surviving. The previous record was 31, set in 2001".

To be able to help educate the public about these magnificent creatures and their endangered status really makes our job worth while! Keep checking in, more photos of the amazing sightings we've been having to come ( lots of humpbacks in the area!!!)
