I think spring has finally sprung here in Boston. Spring is a great time to get outside and celebrate your local community and environment. This weekend we are celebrating the North Atlantic right whale with an inaugural Southern New England Right Whale Festival here at the New England Aquarium. If you live in or are visiting the Boston area you should come check it out. Be sure to stop by the NEAq Right Whale Research Team's table and say hi.
Please come and celebrate the right whale community and its hard work, dedication and efforts to save and protect the North Atlantic right whale.
The New England Aquarium is part of a massive collaborative effort to protect critically endangered North Atlantic right whales from ship strikes, gear entanglements and other threats. All work conducted and images collected in US waters are under scientific permit from NMFS. All right whale research conducted in Canadian waters are under scientific permit from Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
