#15: Mavynne entangled and freed

Mavynne, #1151, is a mom this year. She and her calf were seen by our team for the first time this season on August 28, up off the Wolves. Apparently the pair did not stay in the Bay of Fundy for long as Mavynne was found severely entangled on September 4, on Jeffrey's Ledge, 25 miles off the coast of New Hampshire.

Fortunately our colleagues from the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies who specialize in large whale disentanglement were able to respond and remove all the gear from Mavynne. No one has seen her since that time and we don't if she and her calf are still together. You can search for sighting histories and photos of Mavynn (#1151) on the North Atlantic Right Whale Catalog.
