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.

Whale On, 2014!

Hello fellow whale watchers and survey team members. The female north atlantic right whales have migrated to our waters with their young and it has been such a privilege to be part of the volunteer team to be out on watch - wind, rain or shine!

While I take a sabbatical this year to focus on my painting, you may stay up to date on sightings in our area by visiting the Marineland Right Whale Project's Blog, via the link below. There have been several whales spotted in our area already in 2014!

That said, I'm not one to completely drop off the whale grid so please, if you spot a whale in or near the Hammock, please continue to call or text as my Hammock studio on A1A is close to the beach and I will have binoculars and cameras at the ready. Whale on!
