Helping to save the remaining 503 North Atlantic right whales from extinction.
2014 Florida Volunteer Updates
As the North Atlantic right whales migrate to the South Georgia/Northern Florida coast each winter volunteers help watch for and capture critical details related to this endangered species. This information helps scientists track the fate of the species and acts as a first alert system to pilots in the shipping lanes to avoid accidental killings. This blog shares the findings, photos and other pertinent information gathered from the Palm Coast Sector Volunteer Team while helping to connect and communicate the many ways we can protect the right whales and sustain our wonderful ocean life.
It's time again to gear up for the Right Whale Watch season and what better way to kick it off than by attending the 3rd Annual Right Whale Festival on Saturday, November 19th! This annual celebration returns to the Seawalk Pavilion at Jacksonville Beach, FL and festivities kick off at 10am. You'll find live music, great food and a silent auction all for a great cause. As only about 350 right whales remain the festival is a fun way to share and learn how we can help lessen their human impact, learn more about their habitat and their conservation needs PLUS it's also a great time to celebrate the seasonal return of the Right Whales to our local waters. Hope to see you there!
