Right Whales Sighted Near Our Coastline!
Yesterday I questioned whether the warmer ocean temperatures further east of our coastline may be attracting the whales out of our sight range and today Marineland's new blog (see link to the left and below) confirmed this. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission aerial team reported seeing right whales over the past two days between 4.8 and 13 nautical miles east of St. Augustine Inlet! There have also been sightings to the north of Ponce Inlet and south of Cape Canaveral including mother/calf pairs and two groups of five whales.
